Interesting cause while good for bittering there is so much complexity to this hop that it lends a great flavor and aroma. I would argue, that It is better used later in the boil and allow something like Cascade to do the bittering. This is one of my favorite hops.

Navsingh, i started algrain brewing with 2 x15 litre budget boil pots. Sparged into one and then the other, Boiled them both but only added hops into the strongest wort. Made some great beer :)
