I use them with Cascade hops to get a nice citrusy taste and bittering for my IPAs._x000D_Its not too strong so I can use 1 ounce each for bittering, flavor, and aroma._x000D_
Convenient hop pellets, just what my brew needed.
It has a grapefruit like flavor and imparts a nice bitterness. I bought a pound of them a while back and have been using theme here and there and they are my bittering hop of choice. They go well in different styles like Lagers and Pale Ales.
I really like Cluster hops. I prefer to use it in heavier beers like porters and stouts. The hops has a nice and pleasant earthy/floral flavor that works just as well at bittering as it does at flavoring. It's a really nice hops to have on hand, if anything because many recipes call for it.
