Released by the Hop Research Center Hüll in 2016, Callista is a lower-alpha but fruit-forward hop variety that can produce aromas of berries, stone fruit, pears, and citrus. However, Kehrwieder has produced more than two dozen different versions of SHIPA, each featuring a different aroma hop. Feel free to adapt the recipe and sub in your own favorite.
