Galena Hops?
« on: February 09, 2011, 10:40:59 AM »
How accurate is the description given by NB for these hops and how are they getting a "fruity flavor" if they're only using them for bittering?  I'm thinking of getting some to try but would rather hear some opinions on them first.   ;)

I've used them for bittering and I didn't detect any fruity flavors, but I thought they were very clean and let the flavor and aroma hops shine through.

Same here, been using them for bittering all my beers over the last year.
