Primarily Noble with Lemon/Tangerine Undertones
A nice balance of old world spice and new world citrus that favors the former over the latter. There’s a lemon/tangerine undertone, but the biggest aroma is noble spice (cinnamon seems to come to mind more so than black pepper). There’s also a gently metallic note that drives the crisp finish in lagers.

My new favorite aroma hop
Fantastic floral/fruity hop aroma works well in many Belgian styles. Also works great as a bittering or flavor hop in low-IBU styles like Wit or Munich Helles.
