I got an e-maul from Yakima Valley Hops yesterday and this one struck me as something that would be great in a blonde/american wheat or a Helles/Pilsner. I may just have to grap a pound as I wanted some Saaz anyway.
2019 German Monroe - One Pound
This is an exciting new variety that is rightfully starting to gain some attention. Monroe is an ex-pat of sorts, as it is wild American genetics, grown in one of the most historical hop growing regions. With a lower alpha content and an oil content right around 1.00ml/100 g, Monroe showcases itself at the beginning as mild and smooth. But Monroe quickly shows off its ripe red aromas. In the nose, there are wonderful notes of raspberries and cherries that will instantly bring a ray of summer sunshine.
