Default Hopping a brown ale

In my immortal quest to create my own brand of delicious beer i am constantly in search for making my beers bigger and better. I just finished my brown ale and was pretty happy with it. I used a combination of Chinook (which i really enjoy) and Cascade. I have grown tired of the Cascade flavor. What other hop suggestions do you have for an American Brown Ale? I am always looking to try a new hop or taste something new. Let me have your thoughts! Thanks guys!

I love Citra Hops, drinking a Citra Pale HB now. That'd be interested to try a brown with Citra. Hmmmmmmm

I have a friend that does a simcoe brown ale. It's delicious.

I was wondering the same thing as I am brewing a brown ale using chocolate rye malt this weekend. Was thinking of magnum and cascade possibly? I also have Williamette and Ahtanum laying around too and some tettang.

I lie using Williamette in brown ales. I use them for all 3 additions in my maple brown ale.

I'm on a big Willamette kick right now. I would go with that!

I have an American Brown on tap right now that I used Amarillo for aroma additions (flameout and dry), It's pretty good. There's some changes I would make, but not to the hop schedule.

Williamette works really well as a late hop in darker beers. Try that.
