Not a lot of literature on them from my experiences so far. I made an all-Newport ale last harvest that may have been the tastiest beer I have made thus far. I think they'd be great for bittering IPA's or pales. Although reputed as having little aroma, I found that not to be the case (I used them pretty liberally). Because of a mistake regarding storage, I did not have enough to make more than one batch from my first harvest.
Taking someone's advice, I brewed a SMASH so I could really get a sense of the hop. I would recommend that you do the same. THe taste of this hop was a bit unusual, so it is hard to say "they remind me of _______."
