Ella™ (previously known as Stella) packs less of an upfront punch than her big sister Galaxy™, but is no less of a star. 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 and grapefruit flavours.
The newest flavour hop from Australia is bit of a chameleon – different aspects of her enigmatic character shine, depending on how you use her. Typical descriptors don’t work very well for Enigma™. Tasting sessions have given interesting terms like ‘Pinot Gris’, ‘raspberries’, and ‘redcurrant’, through to rock melon and light tropical fruit.
