I use mine for everything - bittering, flavor, aroma. When I first planted them, I assumed they AA %'age would be low b/c an idiot like me was doing the hop farming. After I used them in an all-home-grown-hops brew, I was pleasantly surprised at how close they were to the commercial hops I'd gotten from Freshops. So, I upped the AA rating and never looked back. Stands to reason they'd be close, since I got the rhizomes from Freshops.
