Apollo is a super alpha variety that is a descendant of Zeus hops and was first cultivated in 2000. Its monstrous alpha acid percentage (15-19%) makes it a popular bittering hop for big IPAs. It is dank with resinous aromas and flavors, but also offers some nice bright citrus elements. Originally it was only used as a bittering hop, but has found a recent resurgence as a dual purpose hop. Apollo has excellent storage stability. Apollo has very high alpha, good storage stability. Added late into the brew boil, it is said to provide a strong grapefruit and floral hoppy note.
