This has become my go-to hop for bittering purposes. I have used it in beers from IPA's to English Milds. Even in the mild, which had no late addition hops, just a bit of Millennium for a 60 minute boil, there was little hop character evident (maybe a little bit of pungency). Overall, a good, clean hop that's very economical for bittering purposes due to the very high (15.9% for my batch) AA content.
Used this for bittering in a stout. Bit more citrus than I was expecting, but still pungent, with a mild earthy after tone. Overall I think most of that will be covered up by the high malt flavor, giving way to a smooth finish.
