Newport Hops
« on: February 04, 2016, 09:43:39 PM »
Just curious to see what people have to say about this hop. They are on NB for $.63/oz. so I grabbed a 5oz.
Has anybody used them? and if so what are your likes and dislikes about them. I couldn't find much other than what the NB site said. "12.0-14.0%. Super-high alpha hop with an earthy, slightly resinous aroma—sometimes described as "new mown hay." 
A fine beer may be judged with only one sip, but it's better to be thoroughly sure.
Kegged/Bottled: N/A
Coming up:
SMaSH Rye Pale Ale
Chocolate Rye Stout
Milk Stout

I have never used them but they appear to mainly be recommended for bittering. I have always wanted to try Magnum for flavor/aroma additions but it sounds like a waste of hops. I wonder if this is a similar type of 'bittering' only hop...
On Tap/Bottled: Golsch, Iliff IPA, Hopfenbier, Salted berry cider

Fermenting: Rye Cream Ale
Up Next: G Pils, Maibock

Yeah that's the only thing I would use them for. Maybe I will try an small patch SMaSH beer with them to see how they fair.
