Hallertau grown hops have a very long history in German lagers & pilsners and their aromatic and flavor properties help to describe generations of beers from the area. The Hallertau varieties are considered noble hops and refers to their high amounts of humulene, low amounts of alpha acids and high aromatic qualities.
HALLA® was grown from seed brought by German immigrants last century and is named after the Scandinavian goddess of the earth whose name denotes strength and power and has several plants associated with her including the holly, hop, yew & elder.
Halla® is an bright green aromatic hop with an alpha acid rating at 6%-7%.
