Southern Star is a South African hop variety that is high in alpha acids, but also big in flavor and aroma. It is a diploid seedling selected from a cross of the mother Outeniqua (named after the hop growing region outside of George, South Africa) and father OF2/93. While Southern Star is a clean and efficient bittering hop, if used in late additions, it offers incredible aromas of pineapple, blueberries, tangerine, and tropical fruit. The juicy flavor and aromas are backed by a complex pine resin and an herbal spice that makes it capable of carrying a beer all on its own, but it also plays well with other South African hop varieties or domestic varieties like Mosaic, Ekuanot and El Dorado.
