First Gold is a terrifically versatile aroma hop, perfect for more modern beer styles. It has a very distinctive orange aroma of tangerines and marmalade, that includes some floral geranium and magnolia, plus slender spicy notes too. Perfect for a single hop beer and often used for pale or golden ales. It has a wonderful complexity that American brewers love.
