Strata Hops – USA
Strata hops, formerly known as X-331, is Indie Hop’s first hop variety to be released out of the Oregon State Aroma Hop Breeding Program in Corvallis, Oregon.
Born in 2009, Strata is the progeny of an open pollinated Perle located in an Oregon State experimental field at Corvallis, Oregon.
From the get-go, this hop was out to impress.
