Description

Magnum is a great bittering hop with an aroma similar to a strong Willamette. It therefore works well with Willamette, Fuggles, and British Kent Goldings when used as an aroma hop in later boil additions.  Magnum makes an incredibly useful bittering agent in just about any beer, and due its very smooth bitterness, you can really use as much as you want. For example, we use two full ounces in our 60 minute IPA boil. It has a great storage stability too, so stock up!

Great bittering hop
Great bittering hop; similar to Northern Brewer, but higher alpha. Said to be used by Stone in many of it's beers.

Can never have enough.
I basically use Magnum almost exclusively for bittering. I like it so much I am going to make a straight Magnum IPA.

For the bitterness
As others have said, great bittering hop - never tried for flavor or aroma.

Solid hop
Good hop for most beers. I put this is my stronger beers to give them a solid hop backbone but not too much. I save my top self hops for IPAS!
