I meant as the sole hop addition. I went looking for a recipe on a couple of the blogs I read, and of course, now I can't find one. I'm going to take another look at Designing Great Beers later. I'm sure there were one or two in there.

Something tells me that we will be seeing a lot of "alternative" hop strains rising to the surface. Northern Brewer has recently started selling "Argentina Cascade" which is supposed to taste more like the noble hops than cascade. Hopefully this might broaden the way we brew.

A nice German Helles is yummy. This takes less hops.

Plenty of Belgian recipes emphasize malt, yeast and even candi sugar tones far more than hops. Hops are meant to be an accent in a majority of Belgians, not a primary flavor. If you have old hops with little left to offer in the way of aroma, use 'em in a pLambic. Lots of choices.
