Bred by Yakima Chief Ranches, Ahtanum® YCR 1 cv. is an aroma-type cultivar used for its aromatic properties and moderate bittering. The variety is named after the location where Charles Carpenter established the first hop farm east of the Cascade Mountains in Washington State in 1869.

Ahtanum® is often likened to Cascade though it is less bitter, has lower alpha acids and its grapefruit essence is significantly more pronounced. So it would be more accurate to say that Ahtanum could be an acceptable substitute for Cascade. Also similar to Willamette, it has strong notes of lemon and grapefruit. Ahtanum’s distinct citrus character led to it being used as the singular hop in Dogfish Head’s Blood Orange Hefeweizen and Stone Brewing’s Pale Ale.

Ahtanum hops are used extensively as an aroma hop with some bittering qualities in American IPA’s, lagers, and pale ales. The pleasant citrus grapefruit characteristics are complemented with floral and earthy aromas and sometimes with peppery and pine aspects. Warmly aromatic and moderately bittering, Ahtanum® is a hop of distinction.
