Yakima Gold is a US grown dual purpose hop that has an alpha acid of 7-8% and a beta acid of 3.5-4.5%. It is truly an excellent general purpose variety.
It features a smooth bitterness and a pleasant aroma of citrus - think grapefruits and lemons.
It is a great choice for use in English Ales and German Ales.
You could possibly substitute Yakima Gold with Cluster.
