Flavour and Aroma Profile

eclipse hops flavour and aroma profile

Eclipse hops offer a rich aroma and flavor profile characterized by sweet mandarin, zesty citrus peel, and fresh pine needles.

This combination is further enhanced by subtle hints of sweet and sour fruits like kiwi and grapefruit, along with an underlying layer of basil and other herbs​.

Brewing Guide and Usage Tips

Eclipse hops are versatile, suitable for a wide range of beer styles, including Witbiers, Saisons, Pilsners, Pale Ales, IPAs, and NEIPAs.

As a dual-purpose hop, they can be used for both bittering and aroma. Adding Eclipse hops during the boil imparts a robust citrusy bitterness, while using them in dry hopping brings out their vibrant mandarin and citrus peel notes.

To maximize the unique flavor profile of Eclipse, it’s recommended to experiment with different stages of addition during the brewing process

Pairings

These combinations work well due to their complementary flavor profiles, enhancing the overall complexity and depth of the beer.

  1. Galaxy: Complements Eclipse with its intense tropical fruit notes.
  2. Citra: Enhances the citrus character, adding layers of lemon and lime.
  3. Amarillo: Offers floral and orange notes that pair well with Eclipse’s mandarin flavors.
  4. Mosaic: Provides a complex blend of tropical, citrus, and pine notes that complement Eclipse’s profile.

Eclipse Hops Substitutes

These hops work as substitutes due to their similar citrus and fruity characteristics, though they may bring slightly different nuances to the brew.

  1. Mandarina Bavaria: Offers similar mandarin and citrus notes, though slightly less intense.
  2. Cascade: Provides a grapefruit-citrus character, but with a more pronounced floral note.
  3. Centennial: A good substitute for its citrus and floral notes, though less fruity than Eclipse.
