Default Gimme some details on these hops

Hops Direct has some Bravo a/a 13.2% and Galena a/a 10--11%.

Anyone have some good rundown on these 2. I have never heard of Bravos.

I used Galena in my Brown ALe recipe...Here's the info I had dug up on it. I had to sub it for the Nugget in my recipe.

Yeah, I love Galenas.

I don't have the foggiest about Bravo's though, other than they smell like Chinooks and have a fruity profile. Russian River has a Bravo IPA made entirely with those hops, so google tells me.
