    Crystal

    Crystal gives a sweet floral, spicy aroma and gentle bitterness.
    SKU: HCRY0044

    Breeding/Development: Oregon, USA. Bred at Corvallis in 1983, as a domestic substitute for Hallertau Mittelfrüh, Crystal is half-sister to Liberty and Mount Hood. Its stock includes German Hallertau, Cascade, Brewers Gold, and Early Green.

    Brewing Application: Unsurprisingly, given its Hallertau parentage, Crystal excels in continental lager and wheat styles, as well as Belgian ales. However, since it also includes some Cascade, some craft brewers put it to use in their IPA hop loads as well.

    Sensory: Mild, sweet, and delicate. Highly floral with touch of noble spice such as cinnamon and black pepper; heavy doses or dry hopping can bring out a bit more intensity with suggestions of citrus peel and dried lemongrass.



    Botanical Classification:
    Family: Cannabaceae
    Genus: Humulus
    Species: Lupulus

    Maturity: Middle

    Yield: 1200 - 1500 lbs/acre
