One of the most recognizable flavors in the industry, the medium flower and grapefruit charachteristics are sure to make your american style ales stand out, even by itself. Great when paired with other american "C" hops (Chinook, Centennial, Citra..) It's a good choice for Dry-Hopping too.

Grows well in So. Cal. Goes in anytime during the boil, but favor it for flavor and aroma. Will use for dry hop for all pales. Use with Chinook and will bitter with Warrior or Nugget.

Floral and slightly sweet on the boil, never dry hopped with it. Very good for pales and american ambers.
