Flavor & Aroma Profile of BRU-1 Hops

BRU-1 is an aroma hop that is typically used in only late boil additions, including dry hopping.

BRU-1 hops offer true pineapple flavor. BRU-1 is notable for its distinct sweet fruit aroma that is often described as pineapple. When used
as a whirlpool or dry hop addition, BRU-1 delivers the aroma of freshly cut pineapple and green fruits. BRU-1 is synergistic with other hops creating a depth of fruit flavor. BRU-1 has also been shown to improve haze stability in certain beer styles.
