Boadicea is a rather recent addition to the Hops family, having been released in 2004 after having been successfully bred and proven for aphid resistance. As such, with also excellent resistance to wilt and down mildew, it is a natural for organic hops growing. It also has an excellent storage stability. Boadicea is a dwarf, hedgerow type of hop meaning it grows to short heights than traditional hops, yet the yield is the same making the hops easier to harvest. Boadicea is said to have the delicate aroma of orchard blossoms and grass. Its farnesene presence appears to give Boadicea some spicy character. Her alphas are low, but just enough to produce a light bodied and rounded bittering.
