Cluster Hops

Characteristics

Cluster is classic American hop developed for US large breweries. It is a low to medium acid (5 to 8.5% AAU) hop that imparts a clean, neutral, somewhat floral bitterness.
At higher alpha levels, Cluster is appropriate for use in bittering and, at all levels, is good for aroma and finish. Cluster can be used in a wide range of beers.
