Strata, formerly known as X-331, is Indie Hop’s first hop variety to be released out of our breeding program at Oregon State University in Corvallis, Oregon. Born in 2009, Strata is the progeny of an open pollinated Perle located in an Oregon State experimental hop yard. From the get go, this hop was out to impress. Between its strong disease resistance, vigorous growth habit, and complex layers of aroma, x331 rose to the top of an impressive group of competitors.
An IPA/Session-IPA/Pale Ale (and believe it or don’t, lager hop) with many layers of different fruit flavor, dried and fresh, anchored with a dried chili-cannabis-funk that does not have any diesel, machine oil, or catty ‘baggage’. Late hot side additions bring out layers of rounded-tropical plus bright-fresh fruit flavors; dry hopping yields more grapefruit and cannabis. Nice with roasted malts too.

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.
