We used this hop as a dry hop based on aroma characters we wanted our beer to have. It was amazing! Such a little amount give us huge flavor! This hits the nose with a strong green pepper smell and the tounge hits tropical and green pepper. It is clean and flavorful with out that bitter green taste we have experienced with some pellets. I highly recommend these as a dry hop addition!! I don't know where the previous reviewer got his information from late boil and whirlpool will give bitterness (that's what that hop addition is for) dry hop gives aroma. We used our pellets for whirl and boil then dry hopped cryo. Best ipa we have done so far. Also yes these LOOK like a pellet but press them they crumble to a powder. They are pressed powder for easier handling it says this right in the description.
