Phoenix Hops comes from the Wye College in Kent, England. They have produced some excellent varieties including this one, which was taken as a seedling of Yeoman Hops. Phoenix Hops was bred as a replacement for Challenger as it is muc more resilient to disease and fungus.

Phoenix Hops is a dual purpose variety and is a well rounded variety. With an alpha acid content at 8.5%-13.5% this variety can add some gusto to beers needing a hop kick. It is compared to Challenger which has some spice to it. The aroma is tempered with an English style about it. The farnesene oil registers in this variety at 1.0%-1.4%, which itself is known for aromas such as magnolia flowers, citrusy, green, and woody. These notes are more subdued after blending with the moderate composition of the other essential oils.
