Default Dry hop sub for all centennial IPA

I've got an all centennial IPA and I'm out of centennial and cascade but I've got almost everything else. I saw these as subs Amarillo, Columbus, Summit but didn't know what would work best since my entire hop schedule was centennial.

I have dry hopped a APA with Amarillo and had good results. I think it would give you similar hop/citrus aroma to cascades.

I can't comment on the others, I have used columbus for bittering, but never dry hopped.

I have some centennials if you are interested in trading.

Look into Columbus.

I think both are a fair substitution. I think the Amarillo might be closer (only because it's probably got the lower % (11%? compared to the 13-15% Columbus?). I like all the hops mentioned in this thread, so I don't think you'll lose with any of them either way.

Thanks for the offer Neal, a little out of my driving range . I've got 8oz of Columbus but only 3 of Amarillo so I may go w/ the Columbus. The AA shouldn't matter so much in dry hopping.

No worries, I work at the Cumberland Mall area and could probably meet you somewhere ITP if needed though. Otherwise, I think Columbus is a good choice.

I love the combination of Amarillo and Centennial. Just about every PA/IPA I brew I use an even blend of these two hops at each addition and just average out their AA%.

I think Amarillo is closer in flavor but Columbus will be tasty too.

go columbus. aa doesn't matter for dry hopping and Columbus is one of the 3 Cs I think you will find it very good.

Columbus is techincally centennial...so you could even still get away with saying all centennial.
