Aroma: Excessively Hoppy

Problem:

In evaluating your finished beer, you may find that the hop aroma is too strong for your expectations, or your liking.

Causes:

  • Excess hop aroma comes from too much of the hop oil humulene. The amount of hops should not exceed that appropriate for the style.

Cures:

  • Practice better recipe formulation for the beer style being made, including amounts, types, and boil times for the hops.
