Love me some Galena. It has such a pleasantly smooth grape and peach flavor to it. This is a wonderful hop for any American slanting beer. The hops has a very smooth bitterness also to it which is really nice if you want a smoother tasting beer than usual. Definitely recommend.
This hops has a very crisp/clean taste to it that makes it a great addition to any beer that you want to have a nice citrus flavor. I love to use this in pale ales and and beers that have a bit of a hop to them.
Great hops creates nice flavor and great aroma _x000D__x000D_Usually add to beginning of my boil
Have had good luck with this hop in the past. tried it in a variety of ales with good results.
This is an unsung hero in the hops world. It has a fantastic aroma and just the right amount of bitterness. I used in conjunction with Willamette Hops as the aroma component to make a delicious english ale
