I agree. It's super for bittering. I really love the bittering I get from it in my IPA.

I'm extremely happy with the way mine turned out, but I paired it with Galaxy and Cascade.

I think Chinook and Belma, as FWH for bittering, then hit both of them mid boil, and toss in some Simcoe and Amarillo.... Yes ma'am... Spicy, Piney, Earthy, Berry and Citrus.

Might be my next brew, actually. I have a ton of Chinook leaf, and 2 lbs of Belma, a mini boatload of Amarillo, and I can pick up plenty of Simcoe from my LHBS.. Might give it a go, in a nice simple IPA, with some 2 row, munich, vienna, and a mix of C40/C60.

After tasting mine, I agree this has bittering and some aroma. As for flavor, it is way, way too light to stand on its own. I am going to let a few people try mine as is but after they do, I am going to put an ounce of Citra in each keg for 10 days. The flavor is like rinsing watermelon rind in water then drinking it. Bitterness is very nice and smooth. Aroma is almost orange/strawberry mix. I think something like a Citra or Galaxy combo with this would make a super summer beer.

Great comparison.. The watery melon flavor. I get that. I don't get quite watermelon, as I hate watermelon, but I do get the light melon, berry flavor from it.

Anyways.. Galaxy and Belma are a killer, killer combo. Balance the two ends with something everyone loves, like Citra or Cascade and it's good.

Amarillo would make me squeal with it.

Well as everyone else described very light melon berry quality, for my late additions still had a nice clean bitterness. Seemed to add extra pleasent mouthfeel. I used leaf hops they seemed to be a little browned around the edges, maybe the pellets have better aroma. All things aside if theres any left(havnt checked) im going to order some pellets to sub anywhere I would have used magnum before, for bittering

One thing to add to the conversation - I've been dry hopping 4oz whole hops in the keg now for about 3 weeks with zero grassy flavors-super clean

Mine smelled super grassy when I racked to the keg, after 10 days on gas, I didn't get any grassiness at all (1oz FWH, 1oz @ 10 and 2oz dry hop).
