Good aroma from dry hopping and flame out
It's got a good citrusy aroma that really comes out nicely when dry hopping and adding at flame out.

Finishing hops for a Stone Pale Ale Clone
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.

good pale ale hop
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.

Good for IPA.
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.

Great ingredient
These pellets are used in a great black IPA kit only available in November. They add great flavor & aroma - I love the Hopstache

reduced bitterness
I originally bought these hops to use because a friend said they were less bitter than other hop varietals. And low and behold I found this to be true when I used the Ahtanum pellet hops.

Zane is an Idiot
Why give a bad review to a hop because it isn't the same as another hop? Ahtanum is an excellent hop, you just know how to use it.

Pleasant Late Hop
I had a cascade brown ale that just didn't have the right hop aroma or flavor when fermentation was finished, and a friend recommended I dry hop for a week before bottling. All I had on hand was a pack of these. I added a quarter ounce to five gallons. One week of dry hopping added exactly the slightly green, fruity-floral, hop flavor that the brew was missing. I would agree, these are not a lot like Cascades. I would call it slightly more botanical and a bit like juniper (without the astringency) or orange marmelade. I'll use them again in lighter ales and lagers, but I wouldn't use them in large quantities.

Was told this was similar to Cascade, but it's not at all. After tainting two of my brews with unacceptable flavor, I discarded the remainder.
