Triumph 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 the impact in the brewing community after it was officially released in 2019. We planted an acre of Triumph hops in 2020 and will be releasing it for the first time this year.
With aroma descriptors range from "hop pink Bazooka Bubblegum" to a "cup of Dole peaches, how could we not give this a try???
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 orange, lime, and peach. Triumph is more delicate than other fruit forward varieties, but still robust enough to be used in a wide range of styles.
