Loral Hop Profile

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. Its 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 is expected to be commercialized in 2016.

The aroma profile of Loral™ has been described as a “super noble hop” with its wonderful floral and herbal notes followed by a backdrop of citrus and earthy character. 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. Don’t expect an in-your-face fruity character with Loral™ as seen with some recent U.S. variety releases - this hop is approachable and balanced. Great for distinctive IPAs and pale ales but perfect for sessionable and lager-style beers.

Fruit Loop June 20, 2017
Reviewer: Marc Cummings from Poplar Bluff, MO United States  
I brewed 10 gal AG with only Loral hops and split it into 2 5gal fermenters, One got us-05 and the other got Belle Saison.
The one with us-05 got 4oz dry hops added and, to me, it has a slight fruit loop flavor. It's a really nice and well rounded IPA.
The other with the Belle Saison is totally different. It did not get any dry hops and fermented down to 1.004, so its dry and very drinkable.
All in all it was a good experiment and I really liked this hop.
