columbus hops


Columbus hops are a member of the 3-C’s group of hops. The other members would be Cascade and Centennial. Columbus hops are also known by their trademarked name Tomahawk. Along with the other C hops, Columbus hops are known for a medium-high level of oils, giving beers it is added to a resiny quality.

Columbus hops are a great dual purpose hop. Depending on how they are used and when added, you can get a strong, earthy aroma from it as well as a strong bitter kick when used as a bittering hop. Columbus is also great for use in dry hopping. These factors make Columbus hops perfect for use in American IPAs and Pale Ales, as well as American Barleywines; all beers that need that extra bitter kick.

The Columbus hop actually comes from issues with copyrights and patents between Yakima Chef, Inc and Charles E. Zimmerman. Zimmerman originally produced this variety. To clean the issue up, a joint venture was formed and named HUSA-CEZ, LLC. This is a deal between Zimmerman and Hopunion, USA.
