Ella™ hops, formally known as Stella, is an Australian aroma variety. It is half-sister to Galaxy and the progeny of Spalt and a tetraploid female and was developed in the state of Victoria in the early 2000’s. By 2007, Ella™ was ready for release in brewing trials. An immediate hit, the variety was fast-tracked into commercial production.

Due to its high level of oils, Ella™ can significantly change character depending on how it is utilized. When used in low quantities, it displays a spicy, floral character like star anise. When used in greater quantities or in dry hopping, it holds its own with any robust malt and conveys a decided tropical and grapefruit flavor.
