‘CTZ’ is an umbrella term for the closely-related varieties Columbus, Tomahawk, and Zeus. Bred for high alpha potential, each variety shares parentage with Nugget. Excellent bittering capability as originally intended, but craft brewers have also harnessed CTZ’s intense, citrus-and-spice pungence for American-style IPAs. Dry-hopping can bring out aromas of pine and spice.
