I use Ella as a bitter hop quite often. I find the earlier you use it in the boil, the spicier it is.

I liken it to a more floral Pride Of Ringwood, but with a much more appealing flavour and aroma contribution. Cross between Cascade and Saaz when used late.

Absolutely stunning in late addition as well as dry hop! The ipas I make with this have a fresh aroma of guava, gooseberry, rose hip, and star anise. Think of a mixture of Galaxy, Nelson Sauvin, and Chinook. But taken to the next level. Easily one of the most unique varieties out there today, and it is heavily underrated.
