I don't know but was looking at them at Farmhouse Brewing. Contemplating getting some in my next order. I will have to watch and see what others say.

Farmhouse states use as big american ales. I think I can do that!

I've used them at the back of IPA's. Found them to be quite clean as a bittering hop. I haven't used them late in the boil so I can't really speak to flavor and aroma with them.

Just picked up a bunch of Apollo from my LHBS. Plan on using it in a single hop brew, so I can figure it out. Here's a quote I picked up from another thread, might help?

"Apollo is low in Cohumulone, so its bitterness won't have the harsh edge of, say, Chinook. Hops added in the last 15 or 20 minutes often don't pack the bittering punch calculated by brewing software."

I bought 8 ounces and plan on using them in my big IIPA's for bittering just to cut down on the sheer amount of hops. IIRC correctly some have used it late in the boil and gotten a citrus like character out of it but with such a high AA I would just save them for bittering.

I have done a single hop pale ale with them, and used them in IPAs also. They are clean, with a citrus-passionfruit to them (smell and taste). I won't do a single hop again, but combine them with some Amarillo, Centennial, Cascade or similar to get a nice contrast of flavors.

If passion fruit is a flavor of apollo, i would suggest dry hopping a galaxy IPA with a combo of galaxy and apollo. Unfortunately there is no clear info on apollo. I have heard, overpowering grapefruit flavors, citrusy lemon/orange, now passion fruit...so i really dont know what to pair apollo with as everyone seems to have their own opinion regarding the Apollo hop. Guess I will have to find out.
