HÜLL MELON HOPS 1oz German New Wave Hop Pellets Intensely Fruity Honeydew Melon (HULL or HUELL MELON)

$3.00

Hüll Melon is one of the new wave aroma hops from Hüll Institute in Hallertau, Germany.  Hüll, or Huell Melon is absolutely unique in the hop family.  It has a mellow fruit character, making it a good choice for styles where overpowering hop flavor may not be warranted.  It is known for its distinct notes of summer melon,  especially honeydew, ripe strawberries, and some apricot.  Its bitterness is quite mild but still noticeable.  It melds well with the yeast character of Hefeweizen and Belgian ales, but many craftbrewers are making single hop pale ales and IPAs with it.  When you open the pack you will know you have something special.  It is the best smelling hop in our store and we carry ~77 different varieties.  The possibilities are endless!
