I just received my copy of the new book from Brewers Publications, "For the Love  of Hops" by Stan Hieronymous.  It is way cheaper (list price $19.95) and has some info on Topaz hops, although not the spider graph shown above.  I am looking forward to reading it and using it as reference.

That is on my Christmas list - I am really looking forward to it.  That and the book on Water.  I have read the Yeast book at least 3 times (takes me a while to get things pounded in).

I know what you mean.  I still haven't finished the IPA book.

I am dredging this back up from the dead. I just got my hands on 4oz of AU Topaz Pellets. Has anyone used this yet? I was thinking of doing a APA with Cascade and Topaz, was thinking 2/3 topaz, 1/3 cascade, 1oz at 60, 1oz at 15, 2oz at flameout, and the rest of the topaz for dryhop, with maybe a 1/2 oz of Cascade... I think the Citrus/Floral would play really well with the Berry theme of the Topaz.

Resurrecting this topic again, because I am drinking my Topaz/Cascade APA that I dreamed up.

Blueberry. That is the predominant flavor I get out of this hop, and I really enjoy it balanced against the citrus/floral of the cascade.

I used 2oz late hopped (0min/30hopstand) with 1oz cascade, and 1oz cascade at FWH. I really enjoy this beer, and I think I may try a Topaz/Cascade/Citra hopped IPA for a nice fruity summer beer. I think it would also be great late hopped with some coriander in a witbier.
