Galena is well known as a reliable, clean-bittering, high alpha hop. The clean-bittering of this hop works well as the base bittering palate for other more flavorful and aromatic hops. Rarely used as a late stage hop unless you're looking for strong blackcurrant.
It is characterized with aroma’s of sweet fruit such as peaches and pears; citrus elements like grapefruit, lime, and pineapple. Hints of spicy woodiness, blackcurrant, and gooseberry can also be found.
Batch 1: Strong black currant, light peach, very woody
Batch 2: Strong peach with a hint of lemon, pine
Use: Bittering hop, traditionally used as an early hop in the brew.
Galena is an alternative to: Nugget, Columbus, Zeus, Tomahawk, Brewers Gold.
