Adhumulone

Adhumulone is one of the compounds found in hops known as the alpha acids. It is a part of the soft resin from the hopís lupulin glands. It is these compounds that are largely responsible for providing the bitterness to hopped beer.

The amount present in a given hop is expressed as a percent of the total alpha acids in that hop.
