Ella (Australia) t90 Hop Pellets 2018 (Alpha Rating 17.2%)

More subtle in character, Ella (previously known as Stella) packs less of an upfront punch than her big sister Galaxy, but is no less of a star.

The changing faces of Ella make her an intriguing hop to experiment with.

In lower doses, Ella can display floral and subtle spice notes, such as star anise, which is best appreciated in lagers or pilsners. With larger additions or when dry hopping, Ella imparts distinct tropical flavours which can be used to offset robust malt and yeast characters in many styles.

Brew Tips

A high level of essential oil presents many options to brewers, who will be rewarded with enticing flavour combinations when varying doses are added to the mix.

Hop Story

Ella's story is similar to half-sister Galaxy; however this time the male parent hop was derived from Spalt.

Born in Victoria in 2001, her star quality was notable even as a seedling, so her brewing assessment was accelerated and she was unveiled to brewers for trials in 2007.

Her early appearances revealed strong floral, noble hop character complemented with a delicious spicy finish. Making a great first impression, brewers couldn't get enough of Ella and she was fast-tracked into commercial production.
