Like Mt. Hood, Mt. Rainier is named for one of the huge, glorious, dormant Pacific Rim volcanoes in Washington State. The Mt. Rainier variety is bred from a Magnum and a USDA male. It has noble, Hallertau-like aroma characteristics, with notes of citrus and just a hint of licorice. It has an average 7% alpha acid content, and is excellent for both aroma and bittering. This is a very popular, world-class hop, and is available to home brewers.
