Highly doubt any Magnum is used in the real beer. 100% American Pacific Northwest hops all the way. No Citra.

Kimmich may rely on 100% late additions. Or he may simply bitter with the first addition at 20 IBUs and let the late additions take care of the rest.

The brewer said he uses hop extract in HT and magnum/warrior are just clean hops to use in avoiding the extract, not something anyone has said is in the real thing.
. Although I agree it makes no sense to use extract, because this beer is not that bitter, I see no real reason to say he uses extract to throw us off the trail.

Thoughts on adding the extract to secondary instead of the boil?

How do you suppose adding malt extract to a fully fermented beer would be beneficial to "aroma/flavor"?

What is the logic behind this question?
