Styrian Golding Hops (Celeia)
Celeia is the triploid offspring of Styrian Golding, Aurora and a Slovenian wild hop. It features an excellently balanced profile all around and very good storage stability. A versatile hop, it has seen widespread use in Lagers, Pilsners, English-style ales and ESBs. It loves deep clay soil and requires a large planting distance.
Unfortunately, Celeia has not been well received by breweries to date and is not grown in large commercial quantities. It is described as slightly citrus and floral on the nose, pleasantly bitter and in symmetry with its aroma.
