4.9 / 5.08 ReviewsUse for both flavor and aromaI use it in my mild ales. Crystal has a pleasant mix of woody and green notes, with some spiciness.January 17, 2014Great for GrafThe Crystal hop has a subtle flowery aroma and taste. It's more mild and not dominant like some other late addition hops. I use it for making Graf, a hard cider beer.November 21, 2013Crystal hops for lighter beersThese Crystal hops have a nice flavor and aroma. Instead of dry hopping with them, I add them at flame out and let them sit for 30 minutes.November 6, 2013Good late addition hopThe Crystal hop has a subtle flowery aroma and taste. It's more mild and not dominant like some other late addition hops. I use it in lighter beers so it doesn't have to compete with a lot of malt flavor.July 26, 2013Woodsy hopsCrystal brings a really wood/green flavor to a beer with just a subtle hint of herb and spice. This hops goes really well in lighter ales like Pale Ales and Golden ales.July 8, 2013Good FlavorI really enjoy using Crystal hops for the aroma it imparts to my beers. It adds a very pleasant floral, fruity, with a bit of wood flavor to the beer. It adds a very nice aroma that I find compliments both American and English IPAs. I do usually lean towards using this in English ales over American just because it compliments english hops better than american hops, in my opinion.May 20, 2013SpiceUsed for a late hop addition. Spicy aromas, smells great! Can't wait to see how this beer tastes.April 27, 2013
