5.0 / 5.026 ReviewsGood All Purpose HopsWilliamette is one of my go-to hops for many brews. I use it in everything from lagers to porters. It can substitute for many hops and can be used in larger quantities to achieve higher AA scores.December 24, 2017Purchased

1 year agoNice SmellWillamette has a nice smell, I could tell when opening the bag, and am pleased with how my beer smells. I used a Hopback connected to a plate chiller to infuse the smell without it being boiled off_x000D_February 12, 2014Pleasant aromaI really like the aroma of Vanguard and have used it on many beers. It's more of a floral and fruity aroma. I add them after flame and let them sit at around 175F for 20 minutes.January 22, 2014woody floral aromaI prefer these hops for aroma than some of the other popular hops. They have a nice fruity aroma that isn't in your face. Used in the last 15 minutes it adds some nice taste (but no aroma), used in the last 2 minutes it gives the aroma (but no taste).December 4, 2013Fresh Fresh FreshGreat hops. Arrived very quickly and were super fresh - great for my stout!November 19, 2013Works wellUsed these in an irish style stout and the end result was very good. Added great smell and mouthfeel to the end product. Added them to a muslin bag during the boil and that helped keep the sediment out of the primary.November 9, 2013Very nice hopsI used these as an aroma hop in my brown ale. I could definitely get a little hint of that spice when I added them to the brew kettle. I'm sure the beer will be amazing!October 20, 2013pleasant aromaGood combination of flavor and aroma. Add in the last 15 minutes to get a pleasant flavor, and add at flame out for pleasant aroma._x000D_October 18, 2013
