Super Alpha Apollo is pricey, but worth it if you are an Imperial Pale Ale lover. It was first bred in 2000 by Hopsteiner, and released in 2006. You might suspect that Apollo is a descendent of Zeus as well as two other USDA hops. With that kind of breeding strength, it’s no wonder Apollo, with its ultra-high alpha acid & bittering profiles, is the requisite choice of several ales and pale ales. Apollo is highly desirable due to its great storageability and disease tolerance, but is usually employed alongside other hops in order to balance more aroma with its high bittering. You can find Apollo in Brown Bison Ale, Pirate Pale Ale, Pin-Head Pilsner, and Belgo Pale Ale to name a few, and often alongside Glacier, and Palisade hops varieties.
