I was looking at hop varieties that people were searching for on our site and there was one variety that had a good number of queries but we hadn’t written a post yet.
Today, I bring you a post on Bravo Hops!
Developed by the Hopsteiner Breeding Program along with Apollo hops, this variety was bred from Zeus hops and a couple of unnamed hop variety.
This variety was used prominently during the hops “crisis” a few years back. They are another one of these high alpha acid US hop variety.
Origin: USA – Released in 2006.
Aroma: Pleasant, aromatic. I am guessing that means they don’t have any strong aroma that can be defined as anything but “hoppy.”
Alpha Acid: 14 to 17%
Typical Usage: Bittering – it’s a clean bittering. Smooth.
Beer Styles: American Ale and Strong German lagers.
