These are great hops that we use in our signature IPA. It's a citrus bomb that people love.

Got way too much of this hop, so use it for both bittering and aroma/flavor additions...never dine me wrong.

Apples and pears
Decent hop for the price, but the flavor is a bit lacking.

Exactly what I wanted, not too extreme, very pleasant fruity flavor, with something in there you just can't quite put your finger on.

The best hop ever
This is our favorite hop. Light, fruity, floral, not acidic on the palate. We use it as the flavoring hop in most of our recipes. Great for IPA, wheat, and honey beers.

Angry Blonde
This was the perfect finishing hop for my Angry Blonde recipe. Just spicy enough and not too fruity.

Smells amazing
These hops smell great! They truly do smell like apples and pairs! I will definitely use these again.

Will use again
Fairly new brewer, still finding my way through flavor profile. Brew a pale ale, with calypso, Amarillo, and citra. Hard to know exactly which hop contributes which flavor. But I was looking for more stone fruit and tropical flavors and aroma and definitely got that. There is more info on the Amarillo, and citra. May use again in a single hop brew.
