I love Ahtanum and will probably use it in an American Bitter recipe I am planning to brew. I used up 2 pounds of it last year. I also really like crystal, I dry hopped a small belgian pale ale in the keg with it and the aroma was great. Palisades are nice too, I did a farmhouse IPA with them that turned out very well.

So how would you describe ahtanum? I always find store descriptions kind of generic (for all hops).

melony... is there a lot of that in Motueka? I could see how that would dance well with a certain mouth feel, but i don't think i want too much of that in my lager

I had a single-hop motueka wheat beer here from Half Acre brewing, very hoppy. It was definitely tropical, I didn't get so much melon, but a hit of spiciness in the background. Good enough that I'm sitting on a lb of 2012 as we speak!

pac gem may be more melony but both are very unique and combine them and its interesting

Magnum and willamette. Never tried them in the same brew and don't think it would work well if I did. Love the magnum for buttering. I made an all willamette ale that was a favorite among my friends.
