Fuggle Hop Profile
Fuggle Hop (United Kingdom)
Aroma - Alpha Acid: 3.0% - 5.6%
 

Selected as a chance seedling back in 1861, Fuggle quickly became a dominant force in English hops. In 1949 it accounted for 78% of its home country’s hop acreage. It is named for the grower in Kent who first introduced the variety. Fuggle is a workhorse hop in terms of style, favored in darker beers like porter, stout, and mild. It adds a classic English signature used alone or as part of a blend for late and dry-hopping English bitter, pale ale, and ESB. Many first-generation American craft brewers incorporated Fuggle in their groundbreaking pale ales. Fuggle is a pleasingly mild hop. The aroma is earthy-sweet and round with warm wood and mild tree fruit aromatics. Late additions and dry hop can break towards grassy. It is often paired with Goldings.
