The Ahil hops variety is hard to come by as its cultivation has been reduced due to the confusion in the hops industry when it was introduced as a SuperStyrian hop in the 1970’s, when in actuality it is cross between a Brewer’s Gold and a Yugoslavian wild male. Ahil is a Slovenian hybrid used primarily as an aroma hop. Ahil production has dwindled in Slovenia due to the older, established Savinski (Styrian) Golding being preferred. It was initially produced in an attempt to produce a super strain with both a high alpha and a high aroma profile.
