    Nope, but I am interested in what kind of hops they are.... Aromatic? Bittering?

    I've used them in a Rye IPA and it was amazing! They are similar to Simcoe

    Used in a Red IPA earlier this year and they were great. Nice and fruity/floral.

    Definitely a flavor/aroma hop.

    Shoot me your email if you want the recipe, it was for sure one of the best I've brewed!

    Zythos is a blend of hops which is created for IPA's and such as far as I know. It works very well for an APA in my opinion, and is my preferred hop blend out of the three I know of.

    Just to clear the air, Zythos is not a single hop variety.
