This American Pacific Northwest grown hop is a newer variety that is widely used for both bittering and aromatic characteristics. Its alpha acid content of about 12% to 14% makes Calypso™ an excellent bittering hop.
Calypso™ has all kinds of flavor descriptions including the most common of apple, pear, and citrus. We also seen melon and tropical fruits which would make sense based on its name. We also read about people getting pepper, cherry blossom, and mint. That is a wide range of flavor! We see it used a lot in IPA’s and Pale Ales but of course you could use it in darker beers as well even Stouts. Since Calypso™ whole hops and pellets are readily available, it is unlikely that you would need to find a substitute.

Every employee, along with the owner especially, is not only knowledgeable but kind and helpful. I am a total amateur and this company made me feel welcome and excited to get back home and start brewing.
I've lived and brewed in many cities across the country, and Perfect Brewing has the best inventory and most knowledgeable and helpful people ever!
I have been ordering their kits for brewing beer since I started back in March 2020. I have never had a bad tasting kit. They have even given suggestions and been extremely helpful. I highly recommend them for any of your brewing or wine-making needs. Keep up the great work.
