[Hop] Columbus features a punchy hoppiness and deep, pensive aroma with understated citrus notes. Commonly used late in the boil and, when fresh, Columbus has a herbal flavor with a lemon citrus back note. Its namesake was created in part as the result of a legal dispute when 2 hop companies attempted to patent the same hop. After an agreement was reached, both Columbus and Tomahawk names were registered. They are technically the same hop however.
