Dry hop = great Review by Gary
Rating
Just won best IPA, and 2nd best overall, in the local beer fest competition. 101 entries and pro judges and used this as my dry hop. (Posted on 10/17/13)
Not impressed Review by David
Rating
This hop may work very well as a supporting hop in a boil but it does not work as a main hop/dry hop. It does have a good aroma. I tried it as an amarillo substitute but I find grassy and resin flavors unpleasant. The beer I made is borderline drinkable/undrinkable and all I can hope is that it mellows after some more time else it will be exclusively used for cooking purpses. (Posted on 11/5/12)
Great hop blend Review by Richhomebrew

I used 1/2# of these in an IPA and it came out great. I have a lighter PA version cooking up now. (Posted on 6/21/12)
Great new hop blend Review by David
Rating
Used Zythos blend with some Centennial in my latest IPA. Gave it 5 stars because it added the complexity I was looking for. As expected, HopUnion hit the description dead on. It will never take the place of simcoe, however I see myself using this hop blend again as more than just a replacement. (Posted on 4/8/12)
Great hops for IPA or Pale Ale! Review by Joshua
Rating
First I want to say buy these before there gone! I bought these hops in a 1 pound bag to try them out after reading about them. Then I made a pale ale and an Imperial IPA both I've kegged and 20 mins ago I just took the first sample of but kegs. I WILL be buying more of these hops and using them. If you want to see the recipe for the two that I just sampled heres a link to them. I've also got an American Black IPA and Black Imperial IPA fermenting at this moment using these hops also.
