Sylva is an Australian aroma hop, descending from Czech Saaz. It is possible that Sylva’s name is derived from such aroma descriptions as “forest floor” and “fresh-sawn timber,” since her name means, “of the forest.” It has a definite, complex aroma, but a subtle one. Sylva is typically used in pale ales and lagers, but it has been suggested that it might work well in a California Commons-style as well. Its alpha acids average is around 6%, topping out at 7%.
