Huell Melon is Huell's new cultivated variety, newly licensed in 2012. Huell Melon makes a great impression with its pleasant fruity character and subtly sweet aromas. Huell Melon is suitable for use in both top-fermented and bottom-fermented beers. Its distinctively mild yet fruity character can be individually tailored to a beer's own aroma and flavor profile. Beers previously brewed with Huell Melon have already made a great impression thanks to the quality of the bitterness and in particular their enhanced aroma profile. The distinctive fruity character of these hops is best released by dosing it at the cold stage (dry hopping).
