Why do hops give off the flavor and aroma that they do? “Because” is not the answer. They vary in Alpha Acids, Beta Acids, Myrcene and a host of other oils and acids. Where they are grown even matters. This book covers over 100 individual hops and breaks them down piece-by-piece so you can properly craft your next homebrew. It also gives you information on what to expect regarding flavor and aroma. The Author owns a brewpub and was constantly getting asked about the hops in his beer and how

    Last year when I started home brewing, I was looking for resources about hops. I found some stuff on the internet, but either it didn’t give me enough information or wasn’t exactly what I was looking for. Then, I found this book and all my searching came to an end. For each hop listed, there is a brief history of it, origin, common beer styles that the hops are used in, the aroma, flavor profile, alpha acid range, beta acid range, and cohumulone acid range. Dan even lists what are good substitutes and his own brewer notes for each hop. All the information provided is very helpful when making your own recipes. True to his word, if you have a quick question, Dan will email you back. He even gave me suggestions for the hops to use for my next Pale Ale.

    i think you should know what is in this book and what is not. the “book” part is 10 pages, yes 10. by book i mean the writing, the words people put on paper to tell a story or convey an idea. the thing is those 10 pages are a great resource for identifying the hops components (specs) and how each of those components impact the final beer.

    The rest of the book consists of individual pages dedicated to individual hops and the detailed specs of the hops, which is very valuable to me. This book provides a road-map on how to understand the complexity of the hop utilization in my beer and then list the majority of available hops with details to help me make good choices for creating the flavor, bitterness and aroma that I am shooting for.

    Yes you can get much of the info for free from websites of hops lists, but this is a nice resource to have when you are designing your beer or even at the brewing stage. I have been brewing for several years and only after reading this book did I feel like I understood enough about hop specs to be able to end up with a beer that I had imagined when I was designing the recipe.

    Just don’t expect a history lesson, technical rhetoric, stories and such. Dan explains the elements, defines how those elements impact the beer and then list the hops so that you can design a beer with a good idea of what the outcome will be. i will buy other hops books, but i do not regret buying this one, i am glad to have it.
