It's a hop that I really like, and an integral part of one of my house IPA recipes.

Kind of boring
I used in IPA: late boil, FO, fermention DH and keg DH. I used approx 1oz each so maybe I didn't use enough. The overall aroma was next to nothing. Flavorwise, I was expecting pine & resin and got nothing like that. I don't know how old these are since MB doesn't have a date on them, however they smelled good so don't think it was that.

I bought these because descriptions sounded like it was similar to summit. I will say they smelled almost identical to summit.

Great for Dry Hop
It’s a real low Alpha Acids (1.5%) but it has a great Piney aroma at Dry Hop.
It worth trying it on a Piney IPA

Very nice with home grown elderberries in a double IPA.
Home grown elderberries were made into an elderberry syrup and added to the secondary in a double IPA. Very nice complimentary hop flavor.
