How does willamette taste all by itself? How does it taste for bittering?

Very floral with just a hint of the citrus character that American hop varietes are known for. I've never used it for bittering, but it's a smooth hop.

Sounds nice, a Willamette Single Hop Pale Ale.

it was pretty good and everyone I gave it to enjoyed it. super light obviously with good earthy flavor. easy drinking pale ale. I also dry hopped it with half ounce of willamette as well for a few days which gave it more character.
