Flavor & Aroma Profile of Lumberjack Hops

Lumberjack is a dual-purpose hop that can be used in all hop additions throughout the brewing process.

BC Hop Co.’s proprietary hop, Lumberjack, aroma can be described as predominately bitter with notes of melon, sweet citrus, and spices like clove and allspice. A slight earthiness softens this hop, producing a pleasant mouth-feel in the beer.

Brewing Values for Lumberjack Hops

These are the common ranges that we've seen with Lumberjack hops over the years. Each year's crop can yield hops that have slightly different qualities, so these number ranges are based on history.

Alpha Acid % (AA)
Alpha acids are the main source of bitterness in beer. Longer boil times will result in isomerization of more alpha acids leading to increased bitterness.

Lumberjack Hop Substitutions

If the Lumberjack hop is hard to find or if you are simply out of it on brew day, you can try to substitute it with a similar hop. The old way of chosing replacement hops was done by experience and "feel". There is nothing wrong with that way. However, we wanted to build a data-driven tool to find your Lumberjack substitutions.

There are no manually picked substitutions for this hop. You can instead use our tool that uses data to find similar hops.

Is Lumberjack available as Cryo/Lupulin powder?

Unfortunately, there is no lupulin powder version of the Lumberjack hop. Neither Yakima Chief Hops (Cryo/LupuLN2) nor Haas (Lupomax) have created versions of this hop in lupulin powder form yet. This new type of hop product is pure concentrated lupulin powder, which leads to more flavor when used in the whirlpool or dry hop additions.
