BOR beer hops are a relatively new variety of hops, first released in the Czech Republic in 1997. BOR is an acronym for "Bohemian Rhapsody", coincidence? It has a strong, earthy aroma with hints of citrus and spice. The flavor is intense and complex, with notes of pine, lemon, and herbs. Its bitterness level is medium-high, making it a great choice for hop-forward beers like IPAs and pale ales.
When used in brewing, BOR beer hops can provide a range of flavors to your beer. It can be used as a bittering hop during the boil or as an aroma hop during the whirlpool or dry-hopping stages of brewing. It pairs well with other varieties such as Citra and Mosaic and can be used to create a balanced flavor profile in your beer. Homebrewers often use BOR beer hops to add complexity to their recipes and create unique flavor combinations.
