Ahtanum Hops are a hop variety to be used for the typical American hop aroma and flavor. Very citrusy and floral, it is a fine alternative to Cascade or Amarillo. From what I read, Ahtanum hops have less bitterness than Cascade so that might be something to keep in mind when crafting up a recipe…or altering an existing recipe.
