It's got a good citrusy aroma that really comes out nicely when dry hopping and adding at flame out.
In the BYO 250 clone magazine there is a recipe for Stone pale ale that I brewed that called for an ounce of Ahtanum for the last 15 minutes. Very good citrusy flavor, and the beer was very good.
This hop seems to have a good balance of herbal/floral & citrus notes to me. It mingles very well with sterling hops in light pale ales.
This hops has a nice balance of floral and citrus which is a balance I have not found in many other hops. The floral and citrus really compliment one another and serve to make a killer American IPA or pale ale.
I recently discovered this hop and have been using it for dry hopping IPAs. Its got great citrusy aroma.
