Hüell Melon (aka: Huell/Hull)
Hüell Melon or Hüll Melon hops are a newer German hop known for their bold and unique flavor. This “flavour hop” was bred as a daughter of Cascade hops at the Hull Hop Institute and released in 2012. Its strong fruity character of melon, strawberry, and apricot are most prevalent when utilized in the dry hopping stage of your brew.
With an alpha acid content between 6% and 8.5%, Huell Melon is primarily used as an aroma hop. Its uniquely fruity flavor lends well to a variety of beer styles, most commonly Belgian Ales and Hefeweizens, as well as Seasonal Summer brews.
Due to Huell Melon’s unique aroma profile, finding a substitution is not easy, but you can’t go wrong with Cascade hops.
