Galena has edged out California Cluster as the most widely used bittering hops variety in the U.S. and is an excellent dual-use hop. It is thought to have ousted Cluster because brewers tend to like Galena’s fruitier aroma over Cluster’s reputed “cattiness”. Super Galena was created to address these concerns. Galena itself though has very good storage stability and its flavor really kicks with clean and very agreeable notes of citrus. Some brewers have noted that when home brewing, Galena is better when boiled in smaller quantities.
