Bravo Hops - 100g

$9.50 NZD

Bravo is a high alpha hop that provides a pleasant smooth bitterness.

When used as a late kettle and dry hop addition it imparts a candied orange citrus character with sweet tropical fruit and light floral aromas.

Bravo is being used more and more as a late addition and works well in ESB, Pale Ales, and IPA's.
