Can anyone suggest a good book to read about hops? I want an in depth book about hops I don't want a general homebrew book.
Don't know of any good books, but I would start here and here.

IIRC, Principle of Homebrewing Science by George Fix goes into great detail about the chemical constituents of hops as they relate to brewing.
