Great hop!
Brewed with these for the first time in my standard Single Hop IPA recipe. Bittered and did a few late additions. Bitterness comes late but smooth in the aftertaste. The aroma from these hops is subtle and slightly fruity (berries, melon) as the beer warms. Will definately brew with them again, maybe increasing my late additions to get the aroma to come on a little stronger.

African Queen Hops
Brewed Batch #139 on July 4, 2017--Pale Ale. Bittered with 1 OZ at 60 minutes, and finished with 1 OZ at 10 minutes. One fermenter used S-33 yeast, and the second fermenter used K-97 yeast. Both had unique, intense lemon and fruit flavors. I'll definitely use African Queen again. The guys at the homebrew store had Hop Envy!

OK high aa hop
My 1-oz. packs were 14.2aa, brewed a SMASH IPA to test the hops performance. The bitterness is nice and smooth the flavor is med-light fruitiness but I cant place it in any certain fruit flavor category. The aroma is very light to nil. Overall it works as a great smooth bittering hop(but then again there are allot on the market) but expect little flavor and very little to no hop aroma.
My schedule: .75oz, 60 min., .5oz. 30 min., .25oz. 10 min., .5oz. 20 min. steep, 1oz dry hop secondary for 7-days. Base malt was brewers malt 2-row.
