Have you used Bravo hops? What kind of bitterness/aroma do they confer?

Haven't used them myself, but since no one else is answering, I'll say that I've heard good things about Bravo, along these lines:

  • Bitters well, a bit like Simcoe, but cleaner.
  • A blend of earthy/fruity/spice for aroma, sort of like Warrior.
  • Less Citrus in aroma and taste than, say, Centennial.

One person said it made a great single-hop beer, and one said it was a little weak as a single-hop, and needed to be blended with other hops for character.
