COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
I want a new hop. It’s called Hüll Melon from Germany and it’s loaded with stone fruit and raspberry flavor. Add to this ale Motueka, Simcoe and Citra plus 20% oats and you’ve got a beer whole lot of news.

[Tap] Darker golden color without much head on top, but with a nice ring of lacing around the sides of the glass. Sweet and fruity aroma with a definite hoppy character to it. Melon, sweet pit fruits, grapefruit hops, straw, biscuit and cracker notes in the taste. Crisp grassy hop bitterness lingers well into the finish. Not getting much berry flavor here. Unique.

Another low ibu beer that manages to be a hop showcase. a little more malt and abv in this one, but the melon and bright fruity hops shine. Easy drinking yet delicious.

On tap at Cellarmaker. It pours a clear gold color with a white head. The aroma has nice melon and spice with light caramel and bread. The flavor is citrus, raspberry, bread with some nice spicy bitterness in the finish. Really interesting stuff.

Draft at CM. nose is very tropical and fruity. Fairly clear yellow color. Nice lacing on glass. A weird fruitiness in the flavor. Like candy or sugar or something. It’s good tho. Just reminds me of a fruit beer. Crazy story bro!

Tried on tap at the brewpub and from a growler. Pours a pale yellowy gold orange color. Medium white head. The liquid is a bit hazy. Some nice lacing and good retention. The aroma is relatively subtle. Honeydew melon is definitely there, but it’s not a strong odor, which makes it seem natural, rather than the artificial melon in air fresheners and whatnot. Some peach, raspberry, blueberry, mild tangerine, mild mango. A little bit more of the simple malt sweetness comes out than in most CM hoppy beers - just doesn’t quite have the normal hop juiciness to cover it up. More melon in the taste with some mild pineapple and grapefruit. There’s a berry bitterness, like raspberry seeds or something - that sounds silly. Some honey-ish malt sweetness but the beer finishes dry enough. Mild bitterness. Sort of a grassy, bitter melon finish. Mouthfeel is light with normal carbonation. No booze. Easy to drink. Interesting stuff. The melon is kinda odd. It’s almost a vegetal-leaning melon flavor, like the flesh near the skin of a melon. I appreciate being able to try a new and different hop varietal, but this one probably won’t grab people.

From a tap at the brewery. The pour is a hazy slight pale gold. An average carbonation, sticky texture, sweet berry and melon notes with a great mild hop bitterness.
