5.0 out of 5 stars An excellent book for brewers and drinkers alike
A superb book for anyone with an interest in hops, with a fine balance struck between technical detail and readability.

Equally indispensable for both commercial and home brewers wishing to improve their knowledge of hop varieties, hop science and modern hopping techniques, and for lovers of hoppy beers who wish to learn a bit more about their favourite...

3.0 out of 5 stars passionate yet patchy..., 19 July 2014
Certainly well written and engaging. Hops are clearly the authors true calling. However, I found that whilst diverting much of the content is anecdotal and weighted towards the social and economic history of the hop rather than practical usage. The author freely admits that there are enormous holes in our knowledge about how hops work. I nevertheless found this book less helpful from a brewing perspective than the excellent book on yeast from the same series.

5.0 out of 5 stars a masterpiece, 19 Mar 2014

This review is from: For The Love of Hops: The Practical Guide to Aroma, Bitterness and the Culture of Hops (Brewing Elements) (Kindle Edition)
Written with passion. Covers the agriculture, the food science, the brewing, the breeding, the tasting and the hop culture. Even contains a few detailed Brewing recipes. The eccentric characters in the industry and the hop heads really shine through. This is a fascinating and entertaining read. I started reading this for background because I'm growing Goldings in the garden, but I just couldn't put it down!
