Exotic and flavorful - Give it a try!
In an attempt to broaden my horizons I brewed a Pale Ale (recipe notes below) using 1oz Magnum for bitterning, 2oz African Queen for flavor at 5 mins and 2 oz African Queen for aroma dry hopped.

These hops melded really well with the malts by adding dank, exotic fruity aromas and flavor. There was a clean bitterness with long-tail lemongrass, chile/spicy notes. Very satisfying. My wife said this was one of the top 3 beers I've brewed which is a huge compliment. Took a growler to a party and everyone raved about this beer with some saying this was "brewery quality" and I should open my own brewery with beer this good. Lol. Not bad for an extract brewer.
