Did a smash with the Warrior
2 row and this hop. A bit too much herbal, grassy in my taste. 10 gal batch 2 oz for bittering and 3 oz in a hop stand at 180 degrees.

best bank for your buck
These high alpha hops really go a long way - if you're using for bittering, you can minimize the amount you need and really stretch this hop

Fresh flavorful hops with good packaging
I use Warrior hops for IPAs and these hops were fresh and bursting with aroma and flavor. The packaging also makes it easy to reseal the bag and retain the freshness of the hops.

Warrior Hops
Great high Alpha hops. Use for bittering. They have a mild neutral flavor so the grain flavor comes through, but really kick up the IBU count.
