Bred at the Hop Research Institute in Hüll and released in 2012, Huell (Hüll) Melon was commercialized as a new, German aroma variety in response to growing demand from the craft beer industry for distinct flavor profiles. It displays bold flavors that are not associated with typical hop variety aromas and has found favor in many hop-forward, IPA, and pale ale beer styles.
