A homebrew shop has just opened up near me (hooray!). Browsing their wares I saw two hops varieties unknown to me: Sticklebract (I think this is the correct name) and Galena. They seem to have been grown in Italy which surprised me. Has anyone used these hops in a brew and what are their characteristics?
Galena is an US bittering hop, 11-14% AA described as "citrusy. fruity/black-currant similar to Bullion".
Sticklebract is a New Zealand dual-purpose hop, 10.5-14.5% AA, described as "high selinine content and a piney, citrusy aroma".
