Mount Hood Hop Pellets (US)
Mt. Hood is an aromatic hop with low acid levels which make it very useful for mid boil hop additions. Expect an aroma of European style spice, herbs, and a pungent, resinous flavor. A great choice for a variety of lagers and ales
This American aroma hop is a triploid seedling of Hallertau Mittelfruh and half sister to Ultra, Liberty and Crystal hops, released in Oregon in 1989. This lineage creates a wonderfully aromatic combination of mild herbs and floral with a hint of citrus.
Released in 1989, Mount Hood is an American-bred cultivar stemming from Hallertau Mittelfrüher. Popular among American craft brewers, it makes a good aroma hop, with characteristics similar to a Hallertau or Hersbrucker and is also half-sister to Crystal, Ultra and Liberty.
It features a pleasant noble hop aroma and has been noted to impart somewhat of a flavor “punch” when freshly brewed – at least in comparison to true noble hops.
