Zumo hops come from Segal Ranch down in the lower Yakima Valley. John Segal pioneered the commercial cultivation of the most iconic American hop: Cascade. He is also responsible for the recent cult favorite Anchovy hops. Now with the 2023 harvest, Zumo is already becoming a favorite amongst breweries such as Other Half and Russian River.
Brewers who have already brewed with Zumo describe it as citrus, citrus, and more citrus. A prominent lime note makes it a perfect fit for Mexican Lagers, but it has also performed well in big IPAs.
