I wonder if anyone caught my play on words. SN Celebration... Donner Party
I've used it and got stonefruit, pear and watermelon - so it's definitely a fruity hop. I liked it but I don't want a fruit bomb beer (so no Calypso/Mosaic/Citra/El Dorado blend IPAs in my future !). So here's what I like to do with fruity/sweet hops - blend no more than one at a time with the usual Amarillo/Centennial/Simcoe/Columbus type blend. You'll get a nice hint of fruitiness, but it won't beat you over the head.
Yeah a brewer buddy thought it was over the top until he tried one of my last ones. He uses less in his IPAs normally, so I guess he was expecting hop extract beer or something. He loved it.

I won some at a comp years back. A very little bit (1/4-1/2 lb. in 5 gal.) added a little complexity. An attempt at using a couple lb. in a batch resulted in a weird toasted marshmallow like flavor.
I use a lot of hops.... 10-12 oz in the kettle usually. Most might say that's overkill.
