    Brewing a one gallon ipa and have some extra Apollo lying around. Wondering if any one had used them in dry hopping and the results they got flavor wise?

    Sounds good.

    from Yakima Valley hops:
    Apollo is a super alpha variety that is a descendent of Zeus hops and was first cultivated in 2000. Its monstrous alpha acid percentage (15-19%) makes it a popular bittering hop for big IPAs. It is dank with resinous aromas and flavors, but also offers some nice bright citrus elements. Originally it was only used as a bittering hop, but has found a recent resurgence as a dual purpose hop. Apollo has excellent storage stability. Apollo has very high alpha, good storage stability and low cohumulone. Added late into the brew boil, it is said to provide a strong grapefruit and hoppy note.
