– Columbus is a Bittering Variety of Hop, although often used as a Dual Purpose Variety. Originating from the Yakima Valley, United States. Columbus is also often referred to as “CTZ”, which stands for Columbus/Tomahawk/Zeus, simply put, Three different Hops with the exact same Characteristics. The naming struggle has to do with copyrights and patents between Yakima Chief, Inc, and Charles E. Zimmerman who originally produced the variety. This resulted in a joint venture going by the name of HUSA-CEZ, LLC between Charles and Hopunion USA. Solid Bitterness followed through by Herbal and Earthen tones, with hints of sharp Citrus, Marijuana, Grapefruit, Lemon and Pine in the finish. Commonly used as a Bittering Variety, Columbus is also favoured for use in Dry Hopping. In the Aroma, Columbus displays pleasant Tropical Fruits, Grapefruit, Pine Needles, Herbal-Spice and Floral-Citrus notes. Part of the ‘Three C’s’ Family which includes Columbus, Centennial and Cascade.
