Hüll Melon
Region: Germany
AA Range: 6 - 7%
Notes:

AROMA PROFILE: FRUITY

Bred at the Hop Research Institute in Hüll, this hop variety has bold flavors and is not necessarily associated with typical hop variety aromas. 

Aroma: Mild to moderate with vivid impressions of summer melon (especially honeydew) and ripe strawberry bouquet. Hüll 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.

A daughter of Cascade, along with Hallertau Blanc and Hüll Melon, and released in 2012.

A tangerine machine when used for late, whirlpool, and dry hop additions, Mandarina Bavaria is quickly finding support in the brewhouse for American IPA and variants, black ales, saisons, Brett fermentations, and other beers where a definite fruity and strongly hoppy character is beneficial.

Aroma & Flavor Characteristics:
Intense pineapple, lemon and citrus flavors with a resinous, herbal followup. Sweet and distinctive.

Når en bruker den som tørrhumle, så vil den først bare gi en blomstersmak, men når den ligger i gjæringsdunken i opptil 14 dager blir mandarinsmaken mer tydelig.

Mosaic
Region: USA
AA Range: 11 - 13%
Notes:

Also known as HBC369, Mosaic is the first born child of Simcoe. Some have described it as Citra on steroids, but it’s much more than that. Rich in Mango, lemon, citrus, earthy pine, tropical fruit, herbal and stone fruit notes.

Mosaic combines a very complex hop aroma with fairly high alpha-acids and low cohumulone which makes it a perfect triple purpose hop (Bittering/Flavor/Aroma). This combination ultimately provides clean bitterness and aroma profiles that cannot be accomplished by other hops or blends, truly a one of a kind and yet another “wonder hop” from the great folks at the Hop Breeding Company.

Typical Use: Bitterin, flavor, aroma, dry hopping
Motueka
Region: NZ
AA Range: 6 - 8%
Notes:

Motueka er en humle med smak av sitron-lime, tropisk frukt og krydder.
Benyttes i Pale Ales, Cask Bitter, Bohemian Pilsner, Belgian Ales.
Produsert i New Zealand.

First selected by a notable Belgian brewery lead to this variety being called Belgian Saaz and later shortened to “B” Saaz so as not confuse country of origin.

First impressions are a very lively and lifted lemon and lime followed by a background of tropical fruit. This variety displays similarities to its Saazer parent through its levels of Farnesene typically around the 12 % mark however the higher alpha also makes this hop more desirable in dual purpose applications. It imparts a balanced bitterness as well as a desirable new world “noble” type aroma.

Nelson Sauvin
Region: New Zealand
AA Range: 12 - 14%
Notes:

Nelson Sauvin, named after the Sauvignon Blanc grape, is a variety of hop developed and grown in New Zealand. It has a strong fruity flavor and aroma that is described as resembling white wine, or fresh crushed grapes or gooseberries. Some reviewers of this hop perceive the fruitiness as being very tropical with descriptions including passion fruit, tangerines, and grapefruit. The distinctive character of these hops limit its aroma/flavor usage to American ales and specialty beers. As a bittering hop, its low cohumulone content imparts a very smooth bitterness.

Wai-iti
Region: New Zealand
AA Range: 2 - 4%
Notes:

A fine aroma hop with fresh peaches and apricot characters within a weight of essential oils (2-4 % AA).

Freshly squeezed limes with top notes of mixed citrus are the standouts in a heady blend of essential oils.

Citrus characters apparent in selection step back a little in the finished product to make way for a blend of stone fruits such as fresh peaches and ripe apricot. Low cohumulone and high levels of farnesene create a rounded clean bitterness when used in single hopped beers. The high oil content fills in all the corners when used in late additions, the hop back or in dry hopping.

Used in both Lagers and Ales where its character builds to develop an excellent finishing bitterness and drinkability. Fresh peaches and stone fruit dominate the aroma in singled hopped beers and also when combining as a late addition with other varieties. Creates fruity aroma driven new world beer styles.
