– Galena is a Bittering Variety of Hop, developed as part of an Idaho breeding program in 1978 that involved the cross between Brewers Gold and a USDA Male Variety through open pollination. Galena is known for her soft and pleasant Aroma, with Grapefruit, Peach, Lychee, Zesty Orange, Earthen Spice and Grass. Galena is commonly used as a Bittering Hop in the beginning of the Boil, but more recently we have seen Breweries experimenting with Galena in the Whirlpool and even as a Dry Hop addition to achieve a Firm, Fragrant and Powerful Aroma. This variety has higher Myrcene Oil content than most Hops imparting a soft, crisp Bitterness needed in crafting big APA’s and India Pale Ales to Robust Porters and Stouts. First Commercially released in Idaho, United States 1978.
