I just made an IPA with the zythos blend. I think it is very pleasant. What does HBT think?

I have used it a couple times. I like it as a flavor and aroma addition in IPA's.

What is it blended with? There are quite a few blended varieties due to the "hop shortage."

I am a fan. I just did an IPA with Zythos as all flavor & aroma additions (magnum for bittering). the keg kicked way too soon.

I did one brew with Zythos and didn't like the flavor. I drank the whole batch because it wasn't horrible, but there was something weird about it. I can't easily describe the flavor and what I specifically didn't like about it.

I bought a commercial beer made with Zythos and it had the same weird flavor. No more Zythos for me.

I made a pale ale with zythos and citra and loved it so much I'm making another batch....wort is coming to a boil as I type this! I'm very much a beginner and don't have a great pallet for all the different hops, but I the zythos+citra was really good.
