Magnum (US), also known as Yakima Magnum has an excellent bittering profile with 14-16% alpha acids and a nice, hoppy, floral, and lightly citrus character. It is a cross between a Galena and a German male, initially bred by Hüll. Notably good for strong ales (IPAs, Imperials, etc.) but also said to be useful for Lagers and Pilsners.
