Topaz, like many other hop types of the southern hemisphere, is very fruity. Late kettle additions in high gravity beers will produce notes of gooseberry, grape and passion fruit. Slightly more subtle than its relative, Galaxy. When used for dry hopping, it generates resinous and grassy flavours.
Substitute: Galaxy, Riwaka, Ella
