Origin: Germany. Bred by the Hop Research Center of Hüll, this new variety is a daughter of Cascade released in 2012.
Usage: Aroma. 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 a 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.
