Cluster is the oldest hop variety grown in the US, and until relatively recently it accounted for the majority of the acreage as well. The prevailing theory of its origin is pollination of hop varieties cultivated by English and Dutch settlers by indigenous wild hops. With balanced bittering and pungent but not unpleasant aromatics, Cluster adds to the authenticity of historical recipes as well as throwback American lager styles. Somewhat strong and largely underrated, the flavor and aroma of Cluster are spicy and floral with earthy blackcurrant undertones.
