Flavor & Aroma Profile of Eroica

Eroica is a bittering hop that is commonly used only to bitter the beer during brewing, and not for too much flavor and aromas.

Flavor-wise, the Eroica hop features a sharp fruity essence.

Brewing Values for Eroica

These are the common ranges that we've seen with Eroica hops over the years. Each year's crop can yield hops that have slightly different qualities, so these number ranges are based on history.

Alpha Acids (AA)
Alpha acids are the main source of bitterness in beer. Longer boil times will result in isomerization of more alpha acids leading to increased bitterness.

Eroica Hop Substitutions

If the Eroica hop is hard to find or if you are simply out of it on brew day, you can try to substitute it with one of these other hops for a similar outcome:

Is Eroica Available in Cryo/Lupulin Powder Form?

Unfortunately, there is no lupulin powder version of the Eroica hop. Neither Yakima Chief Hops (Cryo/LupuLN2) nor Haas (Lupomax) have created versions of this hop in lupulin powder form yet. This new type of hop product is pure concentrated lupulin powder, which leads to more flavor when used in the whirlpool or dry hop additions.
