Monroe MON

Germany

The new hop variety Monroe established itself similarly extravagant as who it was named after. With an moderate alpha and an oil content Monroe showcases itself at the beginning as mild and smooth. When you add the hop to a beer, then she shows her true colors: exactly like everyone remembers Marilyn Monroe in a red dress. A guise full of red aromas. In the nose, there are wonderful raspberry notes supplimented with orange sirup and added to this in the taste is the sweet taste that reminds one of summer and cherries.

Just like Marilyn Monroe, this hop variety is a knockout in red (aromas). The raw hops contain lovely notes of raspberry and cassis complimented by orange syrup and lime. Other characteristics such as gooseberry and quince are also present.

*Alpha acids are determined by conductometric titration (EBC 7.4) in Europe, by spectrophotometry (ASBC Hops-6) in the USA. Oil composition is determined by gas chromatography (ASBC Hops-17, EBC 7.12).

All values represent the medium range of the last 4 years. Be aware that specifically the alpha and oil values can vary in a broad range depending on the relevant crop year.
