I wasn't expecting the hops I added to my wort to explode like it did, I threw the hops in and It made a freakishly huge mess on my stove. My main concern is did I loose my hopping flavor or aroma. I am getting ready to bottle tomarrow, and I hope it goes well. I was doing the 60 minute full boil I didn't add any extra hops at the end just the 60 min hops. anyone have this happen how was the hop flavor?

Relax, it will be fine. The next time you brew have a spray bottle with water available to spray on the foam or just remove the pot from the heat and it should subside
