FLAVOUR

Mount Hood features a pleasant noble hop aroma and has been noted to impart somewhat of a flavor “punch” when freshly brewed – at least in comparison to true noble hops. The lime, floral, canteloupe, spicy (ginger) and woody flavours are smoothly blended creating a subtle mix of spice that tantalises the palate. There is a hint of ginger & licorice which makes Mount Hood suitable for adding complexity to dark beers.

Mount Hood is a truly versatile variety and it works well with most beer styles either as a flavour hop or as the foundation for a blend. 

HISTORY: 

Made available by Plant & Food Research for NZ home brewers to enjoy. An Oregon State University breeding program was initiated in 1983 by Dr. Alfred Haunold with the express purpose of creating an American hybrid that had the same character as European nobles. Mt. Hood, released in 1989, was the first to come out of the program. 

Named after a mountain in the Cascade range in Oregon, Mount Hood’s parentage includes a tetraploid female Hallertau Mittelfruh and a USDA 19058M male.

USE FOR: 

BOCKS • MUNICH HELLES • BARLEYWINES • BELGIAN ALES • AMBER ALES • STRONG ALES • PALE ALES & IPAS • STOUTS & BROWN ALES • AMERICAN WHEAT & HEFEWEIZENS • ALTBIER • VIENNA LAGER • BLONDES • GOLDEN ALES • KOLSCH • STOUT • PORTER

GROWTH/YIELD: 

Mount Hood hops mature early to mid season. The yield is moderate and the growth is moderate to vIgerous.

If you don’t have a reliable way of controlling the temperature, you probably should hold off on brewing a Munich Helles recipe or, most other lagers. Wait for Nature to give you the opportunity to control the temperature naturally. A basement or garage in the Winter can’t help but remind me of the caves once used to lager beer.

NOTES:
CRAFT BEER & BREWING MAGAZINE REVIEW
Green Bench Brewing Co Postcard Pils
Style: Pilsner (American)
ABV: 4.7 IBU: 35
Score: 98/100

What the brewers say:
Single-decoction American-style pilsner, brewed with German Barke Pilsner malt, corn, and U.S.-grown Mt. Hood hops.

What our panel thought:
Brilliant yellow-gold. Lovely nose rounds herbal-floral-zest hops with light, pure, sweet malt into a familiar gestalt. On the palate: Clean, lightly bready malt meets spicy-herbal hop flavor and a balancing bitterness. Nice and round, with enough body to hold that hop flavor. Finishes clean, softly bittersweet, with lingering spicy bitterness that compels further gulps. Dials up character a half-notch, never disrupting that harmonious whole. 

What our editors thought:
Demure and elegant nose—unassuming but confident as it moves with a certain swift herbal grace. The sip further evokes this restraint, as very light and fine-tuned herbal and spicy hops notes play against the delicate malt. The beautiful simplicity of it all makes it equally powerful as a beer to sip and enjoy for what it is, or a beer that disappears into the background of great conversation.
