5.0 / 5.08 ReviewsBitterStrong bittering from these hops if you use them in a full 90 minute boil. You can get away with using just half a bag for some styles.January 31, 2014Great hopsI used this variety along with others to make a clone of Dogfish's 60 minute. Overall, I'd say it closely resembled the flavor I was after. It's tough to really pull out the aroma/bitterness of one variety of hops, but I would stay that it didn't stick out as being bad. _x000D__x000D_The packaging is solid as well.November 14, 2013These ones are goodThe strength of these is so high that you can use a smaller portion to bitter your brew than others. Saves money and still has a good aroma to it.April 25, 2013Great for bitteringI used this as my bittering hops for a black IPA. These worked out perfectly, as the high AA made it nice and bitter, but didn't add overpowering aroma and allowed other hops to really shine through, especially the amarillo and centennial I used in the dry-hop.April 24, 2013Can bitter like an ex-wifeGreat bittering hops. I like to use these with Simcoe for my house IPA.April 1, 2013High bittering low aromaThis hops is great for IPA's and Double IPA's with is high bittering, and low aroma, it allows the other hop aromas to shine through.March 21, 2013Wow.I ordered an ounce for a recent recipe. I was expecting 15%-16% Alpha Acid. The hops I received were 20.2%! I was very happy with this product. $1.70 is a great price as well.January 15, 2013
