Aromatic hop with fruit, berry, and citrus notes coupled with resinous and herbal back tones.
Breeding/Development: Germany. Bred at the Hüll Hop Research Center, Ariana is a cross between Herkules and a wild male hop.
Brewing Application: Aroma. Although high enough in alpha acids to handle bittering duty, Ariana’s oil content and organoleptic profile make it a great finishing hop.
Sensory: Fruity, with intense berry character of black currant and gooseberry. Citrus high notes (particularly grapefruit) with slight resinous and herbal tones.
