I had this hop in the 2016 Triple Hop Duvel. It was is very good. Very similar to the 2014 Triple hop Development with Mosaic hops. It adds to the flavor and is very smooth. Try it, you'll like it!

Stone Fully Loaded Hop#1. Hop-centric release focuses on the Loral varietal. Brings me back to some early 90's Rocky Mountain micro flavors. Balance between old school and new school with a lean toward the former. Enjoyable.
