Relax RLX

Germany

Relax is a hop variety that originally wasn't bred for beer but instead for tee. Despite having a very low alpha content. Relax has a remarkably high ?-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.
