Eroica hops, with its sizeable alpha acid content, very good storage stability, good vigor and is high yielding. Despite that, it is still outclassed by its sister, Galena, and is thus moving toward its denouement of commercial production. Its cones are difficult to harvest and it tends to be susceptable to Ringspot and Mosaic virii. In terms of flavour, it has a sharp fruity essence and fortunately can still be obtained for home brewing experimentation.
