Aramis is an aroma hop from the Alsace region in France. Crossed in 2002, Aramis is a product of Strisselspalt and Whitbread Golding and was in fact the very first variety to come from the Comptoir Agricole breeding program. It inherited Strisselspalt’s excellent aromas while providing a more plentiful and stable bittering quality.
It is sweet and spicy, citrusy and herby. The measure of its aroma and alpha characteristics make it appropriate for any and all kettle stages. Commercially it has been used in New Belgium Hop Kitchen’s French Aramis, a dry, refreshing India Pale Ale.
