High AAU bittering
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.

Has a herbal aroma
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,

Goes well in a Stout
I used this as my bittering hop in a Stout. The bitterness was balanced by the malt, and matched the roastiness of the barley.

Little more powerful
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.

Good for bittering
I've used Nugget hops in a few beers as my bittering hop with good results. I also dry hopped with it last time and it did have a nice aroma. I might try dry hopping with them next time.

great compliment with cascade
If you get a good combination of these nuggets and cascade hops you will have a good beer. I can't wait to make more of the one I did earlier as these hops hit it right on.

Worked well in a Stout
I made a Guinness Stout Clone ( Traditional Stout 20 minute boil kit) that used these hops. I think that had a big impact on the great taste of the beer. It worked well with the malt and yeast.

Not good for brown ales
Everyone has their own taste, but I added some to a nut brown ale and did not like the results. The herbal/resinous character did not mix well with the malty flavors.

A Great Way to Hop up any Beer!
If you like hops, you can't go wrong by adding Nugget, which offers a higher ph, thereby boasting hop flavor. I recently made a Light, using 1 oz Nuggets and 1 oz Cascade in the cook; then, 1 oz of Willamette to dry-hop for 17 days. The result: a very crisp, sharply-bodied beer courtesy of the Nugget hops, but with the wonderful, florally-aromatic benefit of the Cascade and Willamette. I typically use a light beer just for Hopping Up, which allows the true hops flavor and characteristics to shine through, and this is combination has produced one of my best resuts to date. P.S. If you're looking for a good Light beer to hop-up...I recommend the 20 min. Light Kit. Cheers!!

Big Nugget Ale
I always buy an ounce or two to beef up my Oktoberfaust Lager and any ale I brew. Any hophead out there needs more nuggets!
