Default Hops with orange flavor?

I'm looking for suggestions of hop varieties that have orange flavor notes, as opposed to grapefruit or generic citrus. I'd like to try to put together a chocolate/orange stout with just malt, hops, yeast, and water, if possible. I'm headed out to the SLHBS later today. Pacifica comes to mind, but if there are others I should look at as well, I'd love to know.

I personally find that Summit can have tangerine notes, though some people also describe it as having a garlic or onion flavor that they don't like. Amarillo comes to mind too as a more orange-like flavor.

I'm not sure why you wouldn't also use some orange rind, though, unless it's just to see how it goes. Bitter/sour/Seville orange rind is used in beer all the time, and it will blend well with hops. I would also recommend a small amount of ground Indian coriander, which has a strong citrusy aroma.

I get a lot of orange from cascade hops. I would try that along with some orange zest at flameout.

Citra and Amarillo Hops due great for a citrus note. Can be close to orange if dry hopped for aroma tricking your brain into tasting orange/tangerine.

Could also combine sweet orange peel?

I haven't used amarillo yet, but I did pick up half a pound of them recently. Maybe this will be a good test bed.

I'm avoiding the use of orange zest/peel (and cocoa nibs) just as a challenge. I want to see if I can coax the flavors I want out of just the base ingredients. I got some one gallon fermenters recently, and I've been having fun getting experimental (so far, I've gotten a horrible catpiss IPA and a promising pineapple mead out of them).

Ahtanum has an orange flavor to it. It's accompanied by a musty/earthy component, so if you are looking for a clean orange flavor it may not be your best bet.

I did a pale ale with a mix of ahtanum and Amarillo. It tastes like fresh squeezed orange juice.

I've done this same combo -- really fantastic!

I brewed an all zythos IPA, and it was like biting into the side of a tangerine. That keg didn't last long.

What quantities/times did you add for the orange juice flavor?
What style was the beer? <- I just saw that you stated it was a pale ale.
