Default Dry hopping with Nugget?

Ive done a lot of experimenting with dry hops lately in IPAs. My next current one will be a chinook/simcoe dry hop. I was thinking about adding nugget as well. The only info I can find about it for aroma is "herbal". i think its great for bittering. anybody have experience with it?

Give it a try. Troeg's uses it as a dry hop in their nugget nectar and it's a great beer.

I really like the aroma of Nugget. I think you'll be fine with it.

I used Nugget in the boil with Columbus & Cascade for my IPA. I also dry hopped with .5oz of each. Nugget also produces some bitter orange flavor,& some earthiness when combined with certain citrusy hops. Smells/tastes great to me so far.
