Released in 1989, Mount Hood is an American-bred cultivar stemming from Hallertau Mittelfruher. Popular among American craft brewers, it makes a good aroma hop, with characteristics similar to a Hallertau or Hersbrucker and is also half-sister to Crystal, Ultra and Liberty.
It features a pleasant noble hop aroma and has been noted to impart moderately intense and sweet aromas & flavours with suggestions of herbal notes, flowers and green fruit. Can range into pungence with a more pronounced herbal note in some crops.
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.
