Mt. Hood is an American-bred cultivar coming from the Hallertauer Mittlefrüher, which is very popular among American craft brewers. It makes a good aroma hop, with aroma characteristics similar to a Hallertau or Hersbrucker. It has an average 6% alpha acid content, a little higher beta content, and midline to lower oil content resulting in a pleasant noble hop character but if tasted in fresh beer, can have a bit of a punch.
