Love this hop. It has a delicate but noticeable and pleasant aroma and flavor. I think it's under-rated because it is complex and not in-your-face like cascade or chinook. I've made some very tasty single-hop stout, brown and pale ales with this hop. The only way to understand it is to brew a few batches with it. I highly recommend it.

Great Aroma hop, I used it in a light lager and it really gave a nice bitterness and wonder floral nose. Now I'm using it in a IIPA along with El Dorado and Amarillo. All blended beautifully. I think it's my best beer yet definitely will use this hop more and more
