Best Universal Hop I've Used
This works with everything I brew except when I need a citrusy hop._x000D_This is a must have, and it is very smooth.

Good for Lagers and Pilsners
It has a pleasant citrusy and flowery aroma and taste. I've actually used it as a FWH to increase the flavor, and since it's not high in Alpha acids it doesn't dominate the beer.

nice mild hop
Nice hop to use in a wheat beer that adds bittering, but doesn't dominate the flavor profile
