Developed by Hopsteiner Breeding and released in 2006, Bravo is a late-season hop with a profile of high alpha (14-17%), balanced oils, and super high yield and vigor. With its super alpha qualities combined with its spicy, earthy, and lightly floral aroma, it is perfect for IPAs, ESBs. Recently, when other hops were in low supply, Bravo gained some attention when a number of US West Coast breweries picked it up. Bravo gets its high alpha from its parent, Zeus.
