Mt Hood Hops

Characteristics

Mt. Hood is a US-Bred hop variety resulting from a cross with Hallertau and is a relative of Ultra, Liberty, and Crystal. Like its relatives, Mt. Hood retains that spicy, earthy, somewhat fresh noble aroma. I think Mt. Hood is a bit more spicy and rich than its relative hop varieties.
Alpha acids are generally low-ish at 4% to 6% AA, making Mt. Hood a good hop variety for finishing any beer that you might use a Noble German variety - Helles, Light Lager, Bock, and Hefeweizen.
