- Alpha acids: 5.5-9%, Beta 4.2-8.3%, carries a relatively high cohumulone
- Aroma: earthy, strong orange citrus notes- however quite harsh
- Yield: Reported as having medium to high yields, cones are long catkin-type
- Storage stability: Unknown
- Maturity: Early
- Beer styles: Browns, Dark Ales, being used by craft brewers in Colorado
