Mount Hood

Released in 1989, Mount Hood is an American-bred cultivar stemming from Hallertau Mittelfrüher. 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 somewhat of a flavour “punch” when freshly brewed – at least in comparison to true noble hops.
