Mt. Hood Pellet Hops
Mt. Hood is an aroma variety with marked similarities to the German Hallertau and Hersbrucker varieties. This was the first hop in the triploid Hallertau breeding program to be released. Mt Hood has a low alpha acid rating of 4.0%-8.0% and is used primarily as an aroma variety. This half-sister to Crystal, Liberty, and Ultra Hops has a well-tempered bitterness. The aroma is warm and gratifying, and can be somewhat pungent with fresh batches.
