Loral™ formerly known as HBC 291, provides a more traditional yet unique hop character, providing the floral and herbal notes one would expect from a fine noble aroma hop.
Loral ™ mother is the U.S. developed aroma variety Glacier; the grandmother being the long established European noble aroma variety known as Tardif de Bourgogne originating in the Bourgogne region of Eastern France. The father is a son of the U.S. developed Nugget variety. Loral™ is characterized by having numerous small, dense cones with moderate alpha acids. The variety was commercialized in 2016.
Type 90 Hop Pellets 100g | 250g | 500g | 1Kg
Very pleasant, floral, peppery, lemon-citrus and dark fruit.
A touch of sweet fruity aroma rounds out this well-balanced hop.
In beer, the floral notes are accentuated yet complemented nicely by fruity and citrus with just a hint of herbal.
