Talus is a relatively new dual purpose hop, but one that is quickly finding fans in both pro and homebrewing circles. It works well in a wide variety of beer styles and will pair for even more flavour creativity with a number of other hops. Released only last summer after its' name was changed from HBC 692 to Talus, it draws its roots as the daughter of Sabro, another great hop to use on its own, or paired with other hops to hold it back a bit!
Consider Talus when planning one of your next great summer brews. You'll find it right HERE
From farm to glass, TALUS™ is a robust hop that provides a great, consistent flavor outcome,” says Virgil McDonald, Innovations Brewmaster at John I. Haas. “Its bold aroma translates to strong brewing performance, with a versatility that lends itself to many beer styles, particularly hop-forward beers."
TALUS™ delivers big aromas of pink grapefruit, citrus rinds, dried roses, pine resin, tropical fruits and sage. These unique and impactful aromas remain throughout the brewing process.
TALUS™ is a daughter of SABRO® HBC 438 c.v. and the result of open pollination.
