I'm researching the Bravo Hops and need to know
Thanks for reminding me about this thread.
I think the beer came out very nice. The Bravo hops are not overwhelming in their taste, so the malty profile is very evident but balanced by the bitterenss. I dry hopped with .5oz, the aroma is present but not overwhelming.
I gave a couple of the beers to Brewiz, maybe he will chime in on what he thinks too.
I like the Bravo hops. I will probably not do another beer with it alone, but would not hesitate to use it for late additions to any American style hoppy beer. It is somewhat citrusy, but not anything close to Cascade, Amarillo, etc. It has more of a mild spicy, earthy flavor. I think it would blend well with other American hop varieties if you are looking to make something that is not a grapefruit bomb.
