I dry-hopped glacier in a Rye IPA and the aroma was completely lost by the time it was ready to drink. The aroma seems rather delicate so in my findings it didnt work in a stronger ale.

glacier would definitely be lost as a dry hop, it belongs in the kettle imho

Anyone try first wort hopping with Glacier?
I am thinking of adding 2 oz of Glacier to a 4 gallon batch during first wort. This will be a small vienna and rye grain bill for an APA. Glacier has a 5-6 AA range per John Palmer. I'm hoping the milder "hoppiness" will come through the 20-30 minute first wort brewing.

Anyone have any recent feedback with using glacier? Thinking of brewing a some blonde with a 60 minute and flameout addition to get a better feel for it.

I am drinking now an all glacier IPA, made out of curiosity of what it can do. 3 total ounces in a 4 gal batch, including .5 FWH. My assessment is it is very mellow, slight floral aroma, earthy pear-like flavor. Good for bittering as well. I can see how this hop might get over powered by a C hop though, or mosaic type. I'd make again, but maybe a lighter APA next summer. Cheers

I brewed an all Glacier APA a few months back. The taste and aroma were just a big bomb of apricots and orange juice. It was a little muted at first but really shined with some time.
