Originally sold primarily for alpha acid, Topaz’ flavor potential went unnoticed for some time. When used as a late addition, it is capable of contributing very pleasant light tropical fruit characters (lychee), overlying a satisfying earthy background. Dry hopping results in a more resinous, grassy character which remains very approachable. Flavor contribution by Topaz® depends on the specific combination of malt, yeast, brewing and fermentation conditions used. Lighter tropical fruit characters more pronounced in higher gravity brews.
