Magnum is a great bittering hop with an aroma similar to a strong Willamette. It therefore works well with Willamette, Fuggles, and British Kent Goldings when used as an aroma hop in later boil additions.  Magnum makes an incredibly useful bittering agent in just about any beer, and due its very smooth bitterness, you can really use as much as you want. For example, we use two full ounces in our 60 minute IPA boil. It has a great storage stability too, so stock up!

Go-to bittering hop
Great high alpha noble hop that is perfect for bittering just about any beer, but especially effective for continental lagers.

Good for Belgians
They seem to be exactly right for making Belgian ales - completely anonymous, with just enough presence to give a backbone or structure to my Belgian Dark Strongs, etc.

My go-to buttering hop. It lasts forever and bitters beers well; firm and obvious but not overwhelming. I rarely use anything else.
