African Queen is a South African bred high alpha, daylight neutral hop whose pedigree is a diploid seedling selected from a cross between 91J7/25 and an SA male 94US2/118. The aroma profile includes dank, blueberries, stone fruit, black currant, gooseberries, bubble gum, lemongrass, watermelon, and chilies. Works well with all hop-forward beers, including American and Belgian styles, especially modern IPAs. Also works well with Brettanomyces beers and subtle blended beers such as those with coffee, fruit, and spices. Typical alpha- acid range: 12-17%.
