This is my go-to for bittering any style. Very smooth bitterness with no harsh flavors (maybe a little too smooth for IPA.) A lot of Alpha acids for the buck also.
I ordered several 2oz packets for bittering IPA, but disappointingly the alpha acid printed on all packets is only 7.5%. Since this is waaaay low for Magnum I assumed the packets were mis-labeled and contacted customer support. Their reply: hop levels vary crop to crop, and these are only 7.5%. I'm not sure I believe it. Who has ever seen US Magnum hops with such a low AA%?
