really any of them is a decent choice, I havent made a particularily hoppy brett beer, so I cant offer any direct experiences with that, but I do find that Brett B and L are much more characterful that C, if it were me I would probably use B or L

I really like L in fruited beers or malty beers, and B is great alone in a very dry or malt oriented beer,


In my experiences
L has very fruity nose, and a classic brett character and is slightlier fruity
B is more phenolic in the nose and has a bit stronger brett character

what is AA? i don't see how you can get terrible alpha acids so that can't be it. and what is Brewing MS - master of science? What an awesome masters degree that would be!
