Humulene is one of the essential oil components from the flowering cone of the hops plant. The concentration of humulene varies among different plant varieties but can be up to 40% of the essential oil. Humulene and its reaction in beer’s brewing process give many beers their “hoppy” aroma. Some Hop varieties have been found to have higher levels of humulene, while other, more bitter hop varieties, contain lower levels.
