CTZ hops

Postby dkrel » Fri Feb 22, 2008 1:30 pm

I picked up some CTZ hops from my local LHBS, well because they had them. I figured what the heck., haven't tried these before.

Question what are they and what type of beer would they work well with?

They are columbus. Also known as tomahawk. Also known as zeus.

Thus the CTZ name. Yes, columbus, tomahawk and zeus hops are one and the same.

haven't been able to find Columbus around here lately. When I asked at one LHBS recently, the guy said NO! in a rather agitated manner. It's not like I don't purchase things there and was just shopping for hops, I've bought carbous, buckets, yeast, grain there in the past. Just shocked that he seemed to get agitated when I asked for a particular hop.

It's not like I asked him for whirlflock!

Yes, CTZ are indeed Columbus/Tomahawk/Zues. From my understanding they are the same cultivar grown in 3 different regions in the Pacific NW.

Post the phone number, we can call and see if he has Columbus. :twisted:

Cool, that makes sense that CTZ is basically Columbus. May just have to make an IPA, I have a feeling the current pale ale on tap is just about done.
