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.

Love Loral hops, seem very versatile.  Have used them in a few Hoppy Pilsners and they've been very similar to the description - floral/noble like/citrus.  Looking forward to trying them in other styles and hop combos.

I first found this hop on themadfermentationist.com and loved it ever since. Noble. Floral. Delightful. Bitters ok too if you want to do an IPA with it. Needs more love!
