Hops (Humulus lupulus) grow in more temperate areas located in the northern hemisphere; so, North America, Europe and western Asia. The growing season is about 120 days and they can exceed 20 ft in height.

Hops are classified in three ways depending on the level of bitterness versus the amount of aroma or flavoring they provide. Thus, some are for more bitter beer, some are more aromatic, while others are dual purpose.

The seperate categories for hops are due to the amount of oils and alpha acids within the hops. The oils, which are essential to the flavouring, are around 0.5% of a cone while the alpha acids can range from 2-20%. it is the oils that are also isolated for medicinal uses.
