Notes:
Olympic is a spicy, citrusy, super alpha, grown only in Washington State. However, it appears that it may not be for sale commercially at this time. It was released in the mid 80’s and enjoyed good growth for a while, reaching 1% of total U.S. hops production in 1986, but its production was half that by 1997. It no longer appears in the online list for USA Hops put out by Hop Growers of America.
