Origin: Germany. Bred by the Hop Research Center of Hüll, this new variety is a daughter of Cascade released in 2012.
Usage: Aroma. Hüll 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 standalone hop as a feature of a summer seasonal or Brett fermentation.
Aroma & Flavor Characteristics: Mild to moderate with vivid impressions of summer melon (especially honeydew) and ripe strawberry bouquet.
Alpha Acid: 6.9 – 7.5%
Beta Acid: 7.3 – 7.9%
