Relax

Germany

AROMA PROFILE

Relax is a hop variety that originally wasn't bred for beer but instead for tea. Despite having a very low α-acid content, Relax has a remarkably high β-acid and oil content, which still makes it a very attractive variety for the brewer. Because of its high oil content, a broad range of different flavours can be expected. This could be verified by a simple rub and sniff: from cornflower and the aroma of alpine meadows to lemongrass and hibiscus, this variety shows a refreshing profile. When a cold extraction with this variety is completed, notes of honeydew melon are present.
