Default Warrior for dry hopping & FWH?

Anybody have any experience in dry hopping with Warrior? I was throwing a recipe for an IPA together today using Warrior, Cascade, & Citra. Particularly excited about the citra as I've never used it, but love it in the commercial beers I've tried. anyway hop schedule is:

20g Warrior FWH
30g Citra @ 15min
30g Cascade @ 5min
30g Cascade@ 1min
50g each of Warrior & Citra Dry Hop.

What do you think? Given it's high alpha do you think it would be better to go with something else for dry hopping & FWH?

Cheers

We were considering doing that for our Imperial IPA we brewed a few weeks back. All the research I did we found that Warrior really was best as a bittering hop only. Not to say you can't utilize in dry hopping but I'd personally would stick to the citra hops only. The IPA we did we added warrior at 60 mins. Def has a nice bitter flavor to end but I have yet to keg it.

Yeah perhaps you're right. Maybe I'll just bitter with warrior as planned and dry hop with Citra & Cascade

Well actually I just was searching at apparently Dogfish Head 90min IPA utilizes Warrior in a dry hop for 3-5 days. I bet it wouldn't hurt trying since we are all in the search for perfect brew!

Fair point too IrlandeseBrewing, I'm just not sure at the moment. The cascade & Citra might be a nice marriage for the dry hopping, but having said that theres enough cascade going in for the last 5 minutes

It Can't hurt to try, you just might love it. FWIW, Sierra Nevada uses Magnum & Citra to DH their Torpedo IPA. Magnum tends to fall into that Bittering only category. I think it works well in that situation. But I would consider cutting it half, maybe do 25g of Warrior & 50 g of Cascade.

I've used it in my Imperial Bastard as a dry hop. Works well...

Troeg's Nugget Nectar uses warrior as one of the dry hop varieties. No reason you can't dry hop with them.

I suppose I am going to go ahead with the warrior/Citra dry hop. Mainly because I'm interested to see how it turns out, but also because I'd rather use as much as the warrior as I can, as they wouldn't be suitable for the brews I have planned after this IPA, and I'd probably end up throwing them in the freezer and never using them. I'll let you know how it turns out. Thanks for the input!
