Usage: 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. Sometimes employed as a finishing hop.
Aroma & Flavor Characteristics: Mild to moderate, with a surprisingly pleasant tropical citrus quality. Can have a slightly “rustic” edge which belies its Brewers Gold ancestry.
