Default Lemony flavored hops?

I'm looking for some suggestions on hops that have a distinct lemony flavor for a nice light apa I'm going to brew this Saturday. Any suggestions would be very helpful.

TIA
Ken

Sorachi ace hops are almost always described as lemony. I've never used them, but I know that's the common perception.

In terms of hops sorachi ace is the way to go. But you could also do an alcohol extraction of lemon rind (think lemon peel in vodka).

Crystal has a bit of a lemony edge. It's not strong, but it's there, and will come through in a mild flavored beer.

Sorachi Ace for sure. It's great paired with Citra especially.

Hallertauer Saphir is a bit lemony too. If you can find the Schneider-Brooklyner Hopfen-Weisse, I would check that out. They dry hop with it. Not everyone likes it, but I think it's awesome.

Kent Golding has a lemon grass aroma/flavor that's a classic ale hop. I like it myself.

I'll throw in my $0.02:

I find Sorachi Ace to be more "musty lemons" than actual lemons...
A new French Variety called Aramis is supposed to be quite lemony.

The most lemon-flavored beer that I've had is actually made from a huge blend of hops; none of which are particularly lemony: Harviestoun Bitter and Twisted but I can't explain that at all...

Although I'm not sure I've heard anyone call Kent Golding lemon-grass like before I HAVE heard English brewers swear that they get lemons off of Styrian Golding, which I'm pretty sure is actually just a stolen Fuggles that was planted in Slovakia -again, not typically considered lemony.


-My last two statements; very controversial, the first two overwhelmingly common descriptors.
I really wish we would banish flavor descriptors like "Citrus" -that's so incredibly ambiguous that it's just not useful.
I'd also love to see us move to getting aroma descriptors from the hops themselves AND in beer as late additions and the flavor descriptions when used as late additions and in dry hopping. There's so much difference between late hopping and dry hopping flavors it's really time to start calling these out. -You can get this info if you buy a 2 volume $300 book from one of the big German hop merchants but really this info should be placed in the hands of the brewers and not held for $300 ransom...
