2021 HUELL MELON (GR) $7.10/lb
Alpha Acids: 6 – 8%
Bred by the Hop Research Center in Hüll, Hüll Melon was developed in response to the growing craft beer movement prioritizing new, exciting hop flavors. A daughter of Cascade, this innovative hop imparts a mellow fruit character, highlighted by notes of summer melons and strawberries. Though it can be used in a pale ale or IPA, Hüll Melon blends well with the yeast profile of hefeweizens and Belgian ales. Using Melon as a late addition to blonde ales or Kölsches creates a light, breezy flavor that works especially well in the summertime.
