Ella hops, formerly known as Stella, is an Australian aroma variety. It is half-sister to Galaxy and the progeny of Spalt and a tetraploid female and was developed in the state of Victoria in the early 2000’s. By 2007, Ella was ready for release in brewing trials. An immediate hit, the variety was fast-tracked into commercial production.
Due to its high level of oils, Ella can significantly change character depending on how it is utilized. When used in low quantities, it displays a spicy, floral character like star anise. When used in greater quantities or in dry hopping, it holds its own with any robust malt and conveys a pronounced tropical and grapefruit flavor.
Typical styles Pale ales, American IPAs.
