I would email Freshops asking them. Cascade, Northerbrewer, Willimette...

http://www.freshops.com

They will make a good recomendation. I would go flavor and aroma only.

I've grown my own hops for several years and here are some things that I learned the hard way. 1) grow them on strings so that you don't have to nearly destroy your fence in the fall when you try to remove the old tough vines.
2) Watch for Aphids and wash them off with soapy water or just a high pressure nozzle with plain water. 3) Use a drip water system, you can improvise one without running underground pipes, etc. 4) Seal the dried hops in "seal a meal" type bags. Good luck!!
