Farnesene

Farnesene is one of the major types of hop oils contained in the lupulin glands.

The major, or essential, hop oils contribute to the aroma and flavor character of hops.

The amount present in a given hop is expressed as a percent of the total oils in that hop. It is typically present in relatively low amounts, except in Noble hop varieties, where it may have significantly greater presence.
