I honestly rarely see this used for anything but wheat beers. Not to say that it cannot be but the the warm flavor that it imparts to a beer, it really works well in hops.July 16, 2013Smells goodThis is a very good hop for many different styles. I've had the most success when using it as an aroma hop. It's worked nice as a bittering hop, but you need to use more or use it as a First Wort Hop. Especially good in lagers.May 22, 2013Nicely doneThis is a really clean aroma hop. You can use it in a wide variety of brews. LOW alpha so best as aroma. I always use to dry hop. It is kind of a flowery/spicy smell. Definitely worth playing around with. _x000D__x000D_As always comes in great shape vacuum sealed and fresh.March 27, 2013
