Mount Hood (US)
Aroma - Alpha Acid: 4.0%-7.0%

Bred in 1983 and first released in 1989, Mt. Hood is a sister hop of Crystal, Liberty, and Ultra. It is the daughter of Hallertau Mittelfrüh crossed with a USDA 19058M male. With its noble heritage, Mt. Hood is an excellent choice for pale lagers, wheat beers, and German or Belgian ales where a refined aroma with low to moderate bitterness is desirable. It makes a good substitute for German-grown Hallertau varieties. It's moderately intense and sweet with suggestions of herb-infused honey and flowers and green fruit. Some crops range into pungence with a more pronounced herbal note.

Malt is the soul of beer... and yeast gives it life..
but the kiss of the hop is the vitality of that life!
