United States / Pellet Hops / 12.3%


Eroica is directly descended from Brewer’s Gold. Though the seedling was selected in 1968, the variety wasn’t officially registered until 1982. Flavor-wise, they feature a sharp fruity essence and fortunately can still be obtained for home brewing experimentation. Despite Eroica hops enjoying a high alpha acid percentage, they are, on paper at least, overshadowed by their sister Galena. It appears this comparison is also moving them toward denouement of commercial production along with their cones being considered difficult to harvest and it’s susceptibility to Ringspot and Mosaic virus.
