Its a good bittering hop. I just used it in the Hop Sacre IPA kit. One bag is plenty and the bittering is the good kind, not the rough kind.
I used them in an IPA and they add a lot of bitterness. No aroma at all, just bitterness. Its not a harsh bitterness, just strong.
These hops add a lot of bitterness and are suitable for IPAs and maybe Pale Ales. They don't add flavor or aroma, but boy do they add bitterness. I liked the overall effect.
I used them in an IPA and got a nice bittering. I added them during the sparge so as to get extra bitterness which I really liked. It was nice and smooth. I'd use them in any bitter beer.
These hops have some serious bittering power. They don't have much aroma or taste, but it's got a nice bitterness. Its less rough than some other bittering hops I've used.
