Super Pride is an Australian-grown hop that has some Pride of Ringwood parentage. It is basically a high alpha version of its lower-alpha counterpart. Pride of Ringwood is known for its earthy and woody characteristics, being mild and pleasant with some fruitiness and overall resin character. Super Pride has many of these same characteristics, but with higher alpha acids to provide more bitterness. It is typically used as a bittering hop with additions added to the kettle, as opposed to after primary in the fermentation vessel. However, use this variety however you see fit. Another great hop from Australia!
