hops protect beer against contamination. they also improve the taste of the beer.
hops boiled for a long time add to the bitterness of beer
hops boiled for about 15 minutes give it a "hoppy" flavor, which could be many things depending on the type used.
hops boiled for just 5 minutes add to the aroma of the beer, giving it resinous floral aroma, somewhat akin to hashish.
these are two ounces of styrian golding hops
