I've used it in an IPA that I wanted a slightly fruitier flavor profile than I would get with the Wyeast 1056 American Ale Yeast. Also good for higher gravity beers as well.

I really like it in English-style ales, particularly browns and porters. I also really like it in stout.

Milds, Browns, Porters and sweet Stouts. Any high-hop ale where you are using citrusy hops.
