Hydra is a new genetic hybrid of two of our favourite strains (Cerberus x Vermont). Hydra offers you lower attenuation (65-72%) for more JUICE coupled with strong mango and citrus aromatics. We think it will especially shine in lower-ABV, hop-forward beers.

The lower attenuation can help combat the unexpectedly high attenuation resulting from hop creep that results in unbalanced hazy IPAs.
