NOTES:
With the research I had done on Pacific Gem hops, after I had already purchased them, suggests this hop variety will give beers a berry-like aroma and flavor. I definitely get it in the flavor but not in the aroma. This is a hop variety from New Zealand but nothing like Galaxy or Nelson Sauvin. Totally different. A lot earthier and since I used only four ounces (mostly late additions), the beer has a moderate hop flavor and is not overboard. They smelled great (dry) but gave me a different aroma after the beer was done and finally poured into a pint glass.
