Apollo is a super alpha variety that is a descendent 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 flavours, 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. Good grapefruit/citrus element when used late or as a dry hop. Very resinous.
Alpha Acids: 15.0 - 19.0%
Beta Acids: 5.5 - 8.0%
