It's a very enjoyable hop.  floral, citrus and when hop bits are still floating around it has a definite pineapple taste to me so if you are looking for that drink it young.  I just moved a keg and some hop sediment got kicked up and it's right back to tasting like pineapple.  as it ages in the keg I found it to be a really pleasant but not crazy intense hop flavor.  still retains a bit of the floral aspect as well with some general citrus type flavor.

 

anyone have any experience with them to share?  I haven't had any in any commercial beers so this is a one off for me.

intensity wise I'd put it somewhere slightly more intense than cascade.

Reading about them they sound really interesting. Seems like I can get them at a reasonable price too, which is always a concern lol

I'd suggest pale ales and summer wheat or a refreshing/light belgian type beer.

You might be able to but I suspect it will take a decent amount of these compared to something like Simcoe or citra.
