Ella hops, formally known as Stella, gained celebrity status practically overnight when her outstanding qualities were noted as a seedling in 2001. By 2007 she was released for brewing trials. An immediate hit, Ella was fast-tracked into commercial production. Her amazing nature is such that, due to her high level of oils she can completely change character depending on how she is handled in the brew. When used in low quantity, she displays a spicy, floral character like star anise. When used in greater quantities or in dry hopping, she holds her own with any robust malt, conveying a decided tropical and grapefruit flavor. She was bred from a female tetraploid (J78) with a Spalt, and is a half-sister to Galaxy®.
