Previously named Stella, Ella hops are the little sister of the Australian superstar Galaxy™. Ella and Galaxy™ share the same mother, but Ella’s father is a variety from Spalt, Germany. This parentage gives Ella a pleasant floral aroma that is backed by soft spice. These qualities work best in lagers and pilsners, but Ella can be incorporated into Pale Ales and IPA during dry-hopping. This will preserve some of the lighter oils that are more fruity and tropical like in Galaxy™.
