Galena

United States

AROMA PROFILE

Galena is the ancient Roman term for the mineral galenite. It occurs in the soils of Oregon and gives its name to the hop variety grown there. Galena is a high alpha acids variety developed in the state breeding program in Idaho and released as a variety in 1978. The female parent is Brewers Gold. Galena is characterized by high alpha acids and a relatively high content of beta acids. Storage stability is nearly as good as for Cluster. The variety is particularly sensitive to downy mildew, day length and climatic conditions and therefore yields best in the Washington growing areas.
