    Galena

    A high-alpha American variety with great bittering power, pleasant aroma, and lots of character.
    SKU: HGAL0044

    Breeding/Development: USA. Galena was bred in 1968 from an open pollination of an unknown male with Brewers Gold. Released in 1978, it continues to enjoy success as a multipurpose high-alpha variety.

    Brewing Application: Given its high alpha and crop yield, Galena is most often found as a classic bittering hop, in much the same vein as Nugget and its descendants. As a finishing hop, it is sought after for its clean, citrus character.

    Sensory: Mild to moderate, with a surprisingly pleasant tropical citrus quality. Later additons may add black currant notes.It canhave a slightly “rustic” edge which belies its Brewers Gold ancestry.
