Warrior Hops
Great high Alpha hops. Use for bittering. They have a mild neutral flavor so the grain flavor comes through, but really kick up the IBU count.

favorite bittering hop
What can I say, its a super clean high alpha. It is the only bittering hop I use now. Save your fancy aroma hop for the late addition or dry hop.

Fresh and aromatic
Hops don't last too long with not handled properly. MoreBeer obviously sells a lot and when they keep them in stock, they seem to do it the right way.

Good bittering hop
Good high AA bittering hop. Neutral flavor as a bittering hop lets your late addition flavor and aroma hops really shine.

Use for my NEIPAs
Very nice smooth bittering hop. Doesn't add a ton of flavor, which is great for NEIPAs.

Great value and quality product.

An almost perfect bittering hop
Very high alpha acids, excellent alpha acid stability, and smooth bitterness make this a great bittering hops for almost any style of beer. The storage properties mean that you can trust this to provide good bitterness even a year after packing. I have started using this in place of magnum, which was my go-to bittering hop, because it is a little less expensive; they are very similar hops.
