Calypso, a Yakima Valley bred, is a dual-purpose diploid hop with Hopsteiner lineage on both sides. Commonly known for its wonderful aroma, but it also boasts a high alpha acid percentage and can be used for bittering. In addition to this, Calypso features crisp, fruity aromas and flavors that exhibit elements of apple, pear and stone fruit brightened with hints of lime citrus. It is marvelously complex with an almost understated earthy, tea-like note.
