In Homebrew #73, Pete Soper sez:

|A while back I asked if any flavor or aroma was contributed by hops
|boiled for 90 minutes or more. Here is a summary of what I I've learned.
|Dave Line's "The Big Book of Brewing" (p 70):
| 90% of aroma lost with boil, no mention of flavor effects

I don't have the book here to give any exact quotes, but my recollection was
that he considered a long boil of hops more important than any benefits from
dry-hopping or putting in hops during the last few minutes of the boil.
