Default Warrior Hops

What is the opinion of those who've used Warrior hops? I was thinking of using a half ounce as my 60 minute bittering hop for an IPA. I was also going to boil an ounce of Amarillo for 45 minutes, then top it all off with 5 minutes of Cascade and dry hop with Cascade. I made my recipe on BeerTools Pro, and it falls within the parameters for an American IPA.

I think Warrior is a good choice for an IPA bittering addition. With the high AA it doesn't take much to get the desired results.

I'v never used them for anything other than a 60 min addition however.

Warrior is one of my fav's for a 60-min bittering IPA hop!

I would lose the 40 minute addition and stick it closer to 15' or 10'. 40' additions aren't really going to do much for an IPA in terms of driving hop flavor. In my mind, you really just want a bittering addition then lots of late hops.

I just bottled an IPA with the same hop combo. Except I used an ounce of warrior for 60 min. Plus I dry hopped with cascade. I am looking forward to this one...

That's what I meant. I misspoke when I said I'd boil Amarillo for 45. I meant I'd ADD it at 45 minutes into the boil. Thanks for the heads up and the advice!

I just used Warrior for the first time in my "Passow's Stoned Clone Stout" and it lent a wonderful taste to the beer, just what it needed for the bittering.

You might consider mixing your Amarillo & Cascade, then splitting it three ways: 15, 5 & dry hop.

But, you better like grapefruit.

Good idea. I was going for a heavier citrus taste, FYI.
