This American bittering hop was bred from a cross between Nugget and Columbus hops and released appropriately in 2000. Though Millennium contains fairly intense earthy, resinous and citrus aromas, it is most commonly used as a bittering agent in brews.
With an alpha acid range of 14% to 17%, it is one of the highest alphas of the popular American varietals. These characteristics work best in American ale styles like APAs, IPAs and stouts.
