i used wlp008 in a session IPA with all simcoe - didn't get any tart notes and didn't dry the beer out too much which I wanted since it was ~1.040 OG - the hops still shined through just fine

Can you describe the flavor/aroma Apollo provides? I'm sure this is a very good IPA!

Not in front of a pint now, but I have been getting a lot of resinous citric fruit & mango character from the combo of hops. After tasting a SMaSH Simcoe I did, I am feeling like Apollo contributed the resinous citric fruit qualities. I'll post back later when I'm picking apart the beer.
