Styrian Dragon Hops
Styrian Dragon is a type of hop known for its intense aroma and high alpha acid content, making it a popular choice for brewing hop-forward beers. This hop variety was bred at the Slovenian Institute of Hop Research and Brewing in Žalec from European and American germplasm.
Styrian Dragon hops are known for their unique blend of spicy, herbal, and fruity flavors, which make them a versatile choice for brewing a wide range of beer styles. They have a high alpha acid content, which means they contribute bitterness to the beer, making them ideal for use in IPAs and other hop-forward styles. They also have a high oil content, which contributes to their intense aroma and flavor profile. Styrian Dragon hops are typically used in the late additions of the brewing process, either as a single-hop variety or as part of a blend with other hop varieties.
