Apollo is a super alpha variety that is a descendant of Zeus hops and was first cultivated in 2000. Its monstrous alpha acid percentage (15-19%) makes it a popular bittering hop for big IPAs. It is dank with resinous aromas and flavors, but also offers some nice bright citrus elements. Originally it was only used as a bittering hop, but has found a recent resurgence as a dual purpose hop. Apollo has excellent storage stability.

Aroma: Grapefruity citrus element when used late or as a dry hop. Very resinous.

Possible substitutions include Nugget or Zeus
