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.
An alpha acid range of 4% to 8% lets the mild flavors and aromas come through in beer styles like English ales, bocks, and even stouts. Possible substitutions for Mt. Hood hops include Hersbrucker, Liberty, and Crystal. Taste the flavors of this unique hop in Anachortes Brewery’s Vienna Amber Ale.
