|Description:||Sorachi Ace is just the type of hop you would expect to hail from Japan. It has a very distinct and peculiar character that sets it apart into a category of its own. Developed specifically for the Sapporo Brewery, this variety has rapidly become very popular with craft breweries outside of Japan due its specific mix of lime, dill and lemon in aroma and flavour.
It has a high enough alpha acid content to serve as a bittering hop as well, however it is primarily used for late additions and dry hopping namely because of its very peculiar aroma profile. A very popular variety for Saison, Witbier and IPA.
