Mystic® is a UK grown aroma hop that has an alpha acid range of 4-7% and a beta acid range of 2-4%. It is owned by Charles Faram.
Mystic® is the daughter of Jester® and features lower alpha acids than Jester® which in turn provide clean bittering in lighter styles. Primarily it is used as an aroma hop because of the strong fruit forward character that it possesses however it is not as big and bold as Harlequin®.
It features aromas and flavors of black currant, citrus and passionfruit all intertwined with a clean bittering.
Mystic® would make an interesting addition to your next Pale Ale, IPA, ESB or Saison.
You could possibly substitute Barbe Rouge, Styrian Dragon, or Huell Melon.
Co-Humulone as % of Alpha Acids: 30-40%
Total Oils (mL/100g): 0.5-1.5
All Others (including β-pinene, linalool, geraniol & selinene): 19-40%
