USA. Galena was bred in 1968 from an open pollination of an unknown male with Brewers Gold. Released in 1978, it continues to enjoy success as a multipurpose high-alpha variety.

Brewing Application
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.
