Hydra hops, originally known as "Befuddlement" due to their unique and initially unidentifiable characteristics, are originating from the United States of America. Their distinct aroma profile includes bright citrus, tangerine, mandarin, clementine, green grape, and orange rind. Furthermore, brewers have identified a plethora of other aromas, such as dried tropical fruit, resin, peppercorn, lime, pine, red apple, berries, eucalyptus, peach, watermelon, cherry, rose, honey crisp, apricot, and a pungent scent. This diverse range of aromas makes Hydra hops versatile, allowing them to not only accentuate the characteristics of other hops but also to stand out on their own. Popular beer styles that utilize Hydra hops include New England IPA, IPA, DIPA, and Bohemian Pilsner.
