PHOENIX (UK) $9.00 / lb
Alpha Acids: 8.5 – 13.5%
Phoenix was bred as a disease resistant replacement for Challenger. While it succeeded on that front, its low yields and slow growth kept it from fulfilling its original purpose. Tasting notes for Phoenix tend to be complex, with an understated spicy aroma and notes of dried flowers, pine, and, notably, chocolate and molasses.
