Bred by the Hop Research Center of Hülll, this new variety is a daughter of Cascade released in 2012. Hülll 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. It has a mild to moderate aroma with vivid impressions of summer melon (especially honeydew) and ripe strawberry bouquet.
