Horizon is a hop with some star qualities. A dual-use hop, it has high alpha acids, but low cohumulone, an attribute much appreciated by many breweries. Its alpha acids are variable, between 10 and 17%, making it very versatile. Its high myrcene and high farnesene content give it some great aroma and flavor notes, both floral and citrusy. It has been picked up by several craft brewers, and is a star at North by Northwest brewery in Austin, Texas where it is used in its top three classic brews, as well as in their specialty beers from time to time.
