1 in 8: Triumph Hops to bring Breast Cancer Awareness
Triumph Hop ProfileTriumph hops are the newest variety to be released by the USDA public hop breeding program. Triumph has been almost two decades in the making, but has been making quite that impact in the brewing community after it was officially released in 2019. While the initial acreage of Triumph was small, the high demand has pushed farmers to expand out acreage and the 2020 crop is looking to be its breakout year.
Triumph's parentage consists of East Kent Goldings, Brewers Gold, Nugget, and Hallertau Mittelfrüh, and its noble genetics are definitely present, making it the perfect lager hop. But Triumph has also found a home in fruit forward ales and IPAs due to its bright aromas of lime, orange, and peach. Triumph is more delicate than other fruit forward varieties, but still robust enough to be used in a wide range of styles.
