Default Your Favorite Hop For Dry Hopping IPA's

Over the years Simcoe has been my favorite and I have plenty for this year...at least 9-10 lbs, but I've been experimenting with lots of different hops in the secondary stage to supplement Simcoe. I guess I'm partly preparing for less and less Simcoe in the future or maybe I'm wanting something different.

Anyway, what are you guys using in IPA's? I like the fruity/citrus/floral flavors in a big way. I've been through the Zythos, Citra, Palisade, Amarillo craze. I'm about to be drinking one with some Simcoe/Horizon. I like a little CTZ too, but in small amounts. I'm looking for something that really stands out.

Are you saying that Citra doesn't stand out?

Where do you buy your Simcoe? I've been wanting to try it, but everywhere I've looked has been sold out forever.

I just did a Falconer's Flight 7 C's single hop IPA. My wife and best friend pegged it as stone fruit. I agree but I got some citrus in there too. It seemed pretty mellow for a higher alph acid hop, with some cool flavors. Definitely give that one a shot.

I have an IPA in primary featuring sorachi ace. I've never had sorachi ace so I don't know what to expect.

Citra is amazing for aroma and flavor, i just made an amarillo/citra IPA and it is by far my best brew to date and maybe even my favorite IPA ever. Now i wish i put more citra in for dry hopping cause the wonderful aroma only lasted about a week and it has died quite a bit, still delicious but not as aromatic as it was when i first kegged

Default Centennial

Centennial. I would use it in a mash hop, for every addition or even better continuously hopped, also in a hop back, in primary fermentation, in secondary fermentation and in a randal. You get extra credit if there is fresh wet centennial that you grew but dried bought centennial in either pellet or whole leaf will work.
