Too Harsh
Columbus has ruined too many batches for me. It's just not smooth, and very bitter. I did have one excellent batch, but couldn't duplicate the results again.

Excellent hop for pale ales
I've won competitions dry-hopping with Columbus hops. They're very intesnse but tastey if not overused.

Brown Ale
I used these as a flavor hop and dry-hop for an American brown ale. They gave it very distinct and "heavy" hop profile. I'm reworking the recipe, but Colombus hops are definitely going to stay.

Good in an IPA
I used it as a bittering hop, and also have dry hopped with it. Its got a citrusy aroma. Its powerful so use in moderation.

Excels as a late addition hop
A high alpha-acid hop, but I don't recommend it as a bittering hop as I find it can sometimes be strong or harsh. For a smooth bitterness, I'll start with my recipies with Horizon or Simcoe, both high AA and low columulone hops, then add Columbus hops for flavor, aroma and sometimes dry hopping. One of my favorites.

excels as a late addition hop
Although it has a high AA rating, I don't recommend it as a bittering hop as it can be strong or harsh. I've bittered recipies with Magnum, Nugget, and Warrior with good results. Lately have used Simcoe and Horizon, both low cohumulone hops, for bittering and added Columbus with 15, 10, 5, and 0 mins left in the boil for a smooth brew with a distinct flavor and arouma that doesn't get much better.

great all purpose hop
i think columbus gets a bad rap, i love them. i use them for bittering, flavor, aroma, and dry hopping. i have found that if i use the first wort hopping technique for bittering, it smooths them out significantly. i pay $2.50 an ounce at my local brew shop for these, so i appreciate the great price Midwest offers. I buy the 1/2 pound package, i use them alot

Great citrus flavor. A little goes a long way. It's good for both aroma & bittering. I use it in a american & belgian styles.

Also Known as CTZ
This hop has great earthy, citrusy, aroma, and flavor. It can also be called CTZ because Columbus and Tomahawk are the same strain, grown by different people, and Zeus is so close its hard to tell the difference. These hops work great as a starting point on Imperials, IPAs Pale Ales, Stouts.. Great Hops
