This a bittering hop with strong flavors. Probably not the best for IPAs especially as a stand alone hop. With sales and darker beers in lower doses it can be pretty nice
Nugget is good for bittering, and nicer than some of the rough higher AAU hops._x000D_It can be used for dry hopping to get a nice aroma. They go well with Cascade hops, in an IPA.
The aroma isn't strong, but that can be ok depending on the beer, like a stout._x000D_I turn off the heat, then add these in for 15 minutes while the pot sits, covered._x000D_They might add a little flavor doing this, but not much,
I used this as my bittering hop in a Stout. The bitterness was balanced by the malt, and matched the roastiness of the barley.
I have the Nugget hop in supply and have been using a much smaller weight to accomplish the light bittering of my homebrews. The higher AAU is saving me a pretty good amount of money per Btch. Taking notes for each created recipe will help to avoid certain hop and Malt combinations in future batches.
