Hartwick hops, trademarked by Great Lakes Hops, are an aroma variety cultivated in the United States of America. Originating as a "field grade" hop by Great Lake Hops, Hartwick is still in its developmental stages and is not yet ready for widespread commercialization. This is primarily due to pest-related issues that the plant faces.
When it comes to its flavor and aroma profile, Hartwick hops are distinctively piney with notes of overripe pineapple. Great Lakes Hops (GLH) emphasizes that the aroma of Hartwick is notably different from their other field grade hops. Typically, Hartwick hops are used in the late boil additions of the brewing process, including dry hopping, to impart its unique aroma to the beer.
