Classic Hop with Great Flavor
I love Crystal hops. I use them in my Cream Ale recipe and there is simply no replacement. Crystal is a classic American lager hop that has a mild fruitiness in addition to the floral and spice aroma. I'm tempted to use them in an IPL.

Dissapointed
Package received listed 2.3% AA, which is quite a bit lower than the standard range for Crystal. Have to go buy some more last minute to compensate in my recipe.

Great hops.
Hops added an nice aroma to the brew. Taste is yet to come as it is still in the fermentor. But it smells wonderful.
