So as an experiment I brewed a SMaSH English IPA using Maris Otter pale malt and Endeavour hops. OG 1.06 and IBU 50. Turned out terrible and I feel I have to warn anyone who plans on bittering with this hop.

The bitterness is incredibly harsh and the beer undrinkable. If anyone has had a different experience with this hop I would like to hear. I don't think I made a mistake in my calculations, since I've been pretty bang on target until now.

So harsh it's undrinkable doesn't sound like something you can blame on the hop - I'd double check your recipe, your water etc.

I must I don't think I've ever used Endeavour for bittering myself but I've certainly had commercial beers that used her and I don't recall any particular issue. She has got some Target parentage, but it's fairly diluted.
