Hops with Cedar Flavor

Cedar-flavored hops are particularly desirable in certain beer styles that emphasize complex, woodsy, and resinous characteristics. These hops can add an intriguing depth of flavor to styles such as American Pale Ales, India Pale Ales (IPAs), and American Amber/Red Ales. The cedar notes blend harmoniously with the hop-forward nature of these beers, complementing the typical citrus, pine, and floral aromas found in these styles. Additionally, the cedar flavor can contribute to the overall balance between the malt sweetness and hop bitterness, creating a unique and enjoyable drinking experience for beer enthusiasts who appreciate intricate flavor profiles.
