What is hop in beer?

Hops are the flowers, or cones, of a plant called Humulus lupulus. Hops help to keep beer fresher, longer; help beer retain its head of foam - a key component of a beer's aroma and flavor; and, of course, add “hoppy” aroma, flavor, and bitterness. Every single beer on the market today contains hops.

In this regard, what does hops taste like in beer?

First of all, they taste good. Hops impart a necessary bitterness to beer that might be overly sweet or out of balance without them. What's more, hops leave behind a whole lot of flavor in the form of citrusy, pine-like, herbal, and earthy aromatics.

Considering this what do you use hops for?

They are used primarily as a bittering, flavouring, and stability agent in beer, to which, in addition to bitterness, they impart floral, fruity, or citrus flavours and aromas. Hops are also used for various purposes in other beverages and herbal medicine.

In addition, you may be interested in are hops in beer good for you?
