Originally bred by Charles (Chuck) Zimmerman as part of a USDA breeding program sometime in the 1970’s, Columbus is sometimes referred to at CTZ (Columbus, Tomahawk® and Zues) though it is genetically distinct from Zues hops.

It features a punchy hoppiness and deep, pensive aroma with understated citrus notes—perfect as a dual use hop. Commonly used late in the boil and, when fresh, Columbus has a herbal flavor with a lemon citrus back note. Usable in a number of styles, notably American-style ales.

Also Known As Tomahawk®, CTZ
