All magnum pale ale?

The place to discuss ingredients, whether about their properties, growing or creating your own.

I'm planning on doing an all magnum pale ale some time over the weekend and was wondering if anyone has had any experience doing this in the past.

I love magnum for bittering and use it in nearly all my hoppy pale ale/IPA's but have never really used it for flavor other than bittering. All ideas welcome.

Thinking about hopping to 44 IBU.
44 Magnum could look great on a label for a session pale i think.

I have found magnum to have very little aroma, and nothing special flavourwise, it just tastes 'german', being from the broader hallertauer family. Give it a shot, but I would recommend some other hop at the knockout or maybe dryhopping. Magnum is a bit part of sierra nevada's torpedo, but they have Citra in there as a dry hop.
