I made an a NS cascade IPA once. The tropical and citrus i got from the hops were nice but i did not prefer it for bittering. Id like to try bittering with chinook and flavor/aroma with NS and chinook

I bought some in 4oz packages at farmhousebrewingsupply.com and it looks like they have some back in stock right now.

+1 to what everyone said. This is such a strange, strange hop; I'm not sure you can ever get too much bittering out of it.

I had it in a single hop IPA that was still cloudy and it ended up being one of the nicest faux keller biers I've ever had! ; )

There's something about NS that makes me just want to GUZZLE any beer that includes that hop. Using only 15% NS just brings with it a ton of that NS juicy grapeyness! I go ape**** crazy for that hop. Any beer with NS should be lower gravity so that I can drink it by the 2 liter boot! ; )

I have a solo hop NS IPA in the kegerator as we speak. I think it's wonderful. It's definitely not an ordinary IPA but has a solid white grapey type flavor and awesome aroma. I used 3 oz throughout the boil and 2 for dry hopping (5 gallon batch).
Go for it! You won't regret it.

I did like a hoppy american wheat or a wheat ipa if you will with NS and Citra fermented with white labs kolsch yeast. Thought it was amazing. I think I used something neutral like Galena or Magnum for bittering and then used 4oz each of citra and NS. It had some of that peach-y goodness from citra and the crazy juicyness from NS keg disappeared way to quickly

That sounds delicious! I bought a bunch of NS because it is usually out of stock so I got enough for another. With the kolsch yeast what temp do you ferment at? Cold for a cleaner taste or warmer for the fruitiness?
