Caryophyllene

Caryophyllene is one of the major types of hop oils contained in the lupulin glands.

Greater amounts of this oil are found in hops used for aroma. An oxidated by-product of this oil can produce a spicy or herbal flavor.

The amount present in a given hop is expressed as a percent of the total oils in that hop. Noble hops typically have a ratio of Caryophyllene to Humulene of greater than 3.2.
