A German aroma hop with an alpha acid percentage ranging from 7-8%. Bred by the Hop Research Center of Hull, this new variety is a daughter of Cascade released in 2012. Huell Melon's unique but mellow fruit character makes it a good choice for styles where overpowering hop flavor may not be warranted. It melds well with the yeast character of Hefeweizen and Belgian ales, but can also work as as stand alone hop as a feature of a summer seasonal or Brett fermentation. It has a mild to moderate aroma with vivid impressions of summer melon (especially honeydew) and ripe strawberry bouquet.
All hops are nitrogen flushed to preserve freshness.
