What did you think of the Zythos hops? Would you brew this again?

I would brew this again for sure very drinkable at two weeks, it might be a while because my brewing resolution this year is to explore pale ales so a lot of pale ales are planned first. I can't wait to see what it does with another couple weeks of aging. All around I think the hops give you a better complexity of aromas than you would get of a sing or double hop dry hop. I will be searching for a competition to send this off too and get a little more formal feedback.
