Alpha-Caryophyllene

Size

Description

Incredibly fragrant and possessing well-documented anti-inflammatory properties, Humulene literally gets its name from hop plant formal name: homulus lulupus. As such, it makes sense that this terpene would be a primary constituent of the iconic smell of beer. Also commonly known as Alpha-Caryohpyllene. Humulene has a potent earthy flavor with a bitter woody overtone.
