Largely based on laboratory work, the volume opens with a review on hops in general, while the bulk of the book covers the chemistry of the bitter acids of hop and beer. Practical, fully detailed procedures on the preparation and/or the separation of many of the compounds discussed are included. There is a chapter included on the complicated issue of bitter acid analysis, and several on the high-efficiency liquid chromatography of hop bitter acids.

Bearing in mind the lack of literature produced recently in this field, the book is an excellent review of the present state of knowledge, and gives a large list of topics pointing to worthwhile studies for the future. The indexes provided will serve as a reference library-dictionary to hops, hop and beer bitter acids chemistry and analysis.
