Product Details
Released in 2009, aroma variety Delta is a Fuggle-type hop, similar to a Willamette, but with a kick. It features a mild and pleasantly spicy aroma of with notes of melon and citrus. Delta is considered ideal for ale finishing.

Hopsteiner first offered Delta to Boston's Harpoon Brewery as a cross between an English-style Fuggle and a Cascade derived male. Harpoon brewed it into an English-style single hop ESB. Delta has a much more emphatic flavor than its Fuggle parent - a truly American punch.
