temperatures. Tangy citrus and pine hop aromas will be enhanced, as well as toasted and dark malt aromas.
Beers fermented with this strain will finish dry and crisp. This strain is at its best in hop prominent American style ales. Very light ales may turn out a bit stripped, thin or astringent if care is not taken with the mash temperature and avoiding over-extraction.
