Default Columbus hops

Just got a great deal on a pound of Columbus hops. I have spent some time searching for recipes that highlight this variety with no luck. Does anyone have any recipe suggestions?

Its really good in APA and IPA - but as odd as it sounds, if its a high quality hop - not cheesy or stale, it is great as a dry hop in those styles. Brewing a Rye Amber right now with the Columbus as a single hop.

I'm considering a Marris Otter/Columbus APA SMaSH to get a feel for the hop. Sound like a good combo? I have found a couple recipes in Brewing Classic Styles that use the hop as well. I have heard really good things about the hop, just having a hard time finding recipes that really focus on it. I think the source is high quality and am excited to play around.

I did an extra pale ale a while back with Columbus, Citra and Brewers Gold. It was dynamite.

If you search on here for a Green Flash West Coast IPA clone recipe, you'll find it uses a lot of Columbus throughout the brew. It is a great hop to use in American IPAs or IIPAs.

Oh hell Yes on Green Flash very good IPA. Columbus is a great hop. Get yourself a bottle of Hog Heaven there is a lot of Columbus in that beer.

Thanks for the suggestions! I will do that. Already found the Green Flash recipe and will probably brew that after my pumpkin ale. Love me some hops!

I you can find Deviant Dale's IPA where you, give it a try. It is double dry hopped with Columbus. Make sure the cans are fresh, less than 30 days from canned on date.

Willamette Valley Hops still has some 2011 Columbus @ $6.84 a pound.

It's really dank...I like it more in my ipas than apas, but regardless, I agree with those above-- awesome for dry hopping. I get a lot of the "fresh" hop flavor from it.
