I've used this as the primary flavour and aroma hop in a US style IPA and its pinapple/citrus profile was wonderful. I will be using this often.

There is certainly Pineapple coming from this hops. I got the 2015 crop not expecting heaps from hops that old. Seems to still be holding some great flavours and aromas. Will be using again if I can find some fresher here!

Used this in Sam (simcoe Amarillo mosaic) IPA, with zythos at appmx 1.5 x the others in dry hop mode. Was one of my best of the last decade, added something extra to the typical northwest IPA. Give it a try if that fits your style!
