Ahtanum® is an aroma hop from the USA. It may sometimes be seen as YCR 1 CV. It has an Alpha Acid of 3.5-8% and a Beta Acid of 4-6.5%. Being an aroma hop it is best utilized during late boil additions for flavor and aroma or during whirlpool and dry hopping.

It is not as bitter as many other hops making it great for use for its aromatic properties. Ahtanum® is named for the distrcit that it is grown in near Yakima, WA. 

It has aromas of citrus (grapefruit) and geranium along with floral, piney and earth tones. The appealing floral aromas come across as elderflower and violets highlighted by outstanding woody and herbal flavors of black pepper and marjoram. These are all rounded off with fruity citurs aromas.
