Ill take it off your hands.

You don't like Urquell? That's a Saaz SMaSH.

Saaz is like half of the Czech hop acreage.

Why the heck I bought Czech hops for a Belgian....


Basically I panic every time I go to the brew shop. Unless I'm making another pale ale, then I'm good.

And I do like Pilsmer Urquell, so there is that.

Galena is a very underrated bittering hop. It provides very clean bittering. I've used it with many aroma/flavor combinations and so far it works well with everything.

Czech Saaz is the most popular hop in Belgian beers, especially saisons and farmhouse ales. Belgium has never had many acres if hops so they came from Germany, Slovenia, or Bohemia(Czech). Probably Styrian Goldings for Belgian strong ales, ideally.

Your fine! Saaz is nice but unspectacular! People are spoiled with citrus bombs. They're mild, a little spicy, just great in some beers.

Personally, Amarillo is so overrated. Hard to find and doesn't add much to my beers. I'll go with Summit for underrated, unbelievable aroma.

You guys have me so amped up. So many good hops on the way to me in the mail right now. And so glad I passed up Amarillo at $35/lb + S/H. Blah!

I bottled an Amarillo smash last night and it's pretty much awesome.

But I like beer.

It might have been equally awesome with simcoe, cascade, centennial, or all these underrated hops you're talking about.

I'm the only one who said centennial is overrated. I can only think of one beer ever that features centennial that I love. Two hearted. Anytime I have used them, or friends have, the results have been less than stellar.
