'''Galena''' is a high-alpha hop variety developed by the Iowa state breeding program in 1968 by [[open pollination]] from [[Brewer's Gold]] and released to the trade in 1978.  Because of its strong, clean bitterness, it is said to be among the most common bittering hops used in America.  It is sensitive to growing conditions and can be more difficult to grow outside of the Northwest.  Galena has a strong fruity/black currant aroma similar to [[Bullion]].

Galena is a high-alpha hop variety developed by the Iowa state breeding program in 1968 by open pollination from Brewer's Gold and released to the trade in 1978. Because of its strong, clean bitterness, it is said to be among the most common bittering hops used in America. It is sensitive to growing conditions and can be more difficult to grow outside of the Northwest. Galena has a strong fruity/black currant aroma similar to Bullion.
