Crystal is a triploid variety that was bred by U.S.D.A. from Hallertau mf, Cascade, Northern Brewer, and Early Green. 

It is perceived as the most pungent of the triploid Hallertau family of hops, and is increasingly popular among U.S. craft brewers.

It is a versatile variety that is used in Pilsners and Lagers, as well as in ESB’s and American and Belgian-style Ales.
