TriplePearl (Triple Perle)
TriplePearl is an USA dual purpose hop that has an alpha acid range of 10-11.2% and a beta acid range of 3.3-4.2%. It is bred from Perle but has a higher alpha acid and more pronounced aromas. It is seen as both TriplePearl and Triple Perle.
It can be bitter forward with a slight astringency but overall features a nice mouthfeel.
It features complex aromas of black pepper, cedar/sandalwood and floral perfume with stronge accents of orange and lime zest. Similar to Perle in aroma except it emphases the melon, sweet citrus and spice notes more. There is orange, lime and honeydew as well as sweet orange peel, lime zest, pepper and pine in the aromas and flavors.
It is a perfect choice for use in a Kolsch but also is a great option for your Pilsners, Blonde Ales, and Lagers.
TriplePearl could be substituted with Perle (US) with moderate success.
