The aroma of the HBC 472 hop cones consists of floral, woody, earthy, and coconut. In beer this hop delivers a surprising fruity note along with its distinctive “472 coconut-woody character.” When hopped aggressively in IPA style beers, citrus and grapefruit aromas rule, but a fascinating whiskey/bourbon and coconut character breaks into the background, especially evident in darker, malt forward beers. The robust character of this hop lends well to full flavor beer styles such as pale ales, IPAs, porters, stouts and barrel-aged beers.
