Total alpha acids between 10-13% and a much higher cohumulone of 42, Ariana will appeal to brewers looking for very different characteristics from a hop, but one that results in a similar flavor profile. Depending upon the style of beer brewed and timing of the addition of the hops, brewers have noticed grapefruit, gooseberry, citrus and vanilla flavors. Ariana is said to be ideal for dry hopping when it imparts its most intense fruity flavors.

All forward contracted hops are tested for alpha, beta, HSI and a full oil profile. The test results will be provided to customers. Michigan Hop Alliance stands by the quality of our hops and will refund or replace all hops that don’t meet generally accepting brewing quality standards.
