I am about to order NB's Sinistral Warrior IPA, but would like to dry hop it. As a new brewer, I am really not able to distinguish the specific differences between all of the hop varieties...yet! Nor do I know which variety would be best for dry hopping when (in this case) the kit comes with a varitey of hops. What I do know is that I love hops, and I love this hobby!!
Hoping some of your seasoned palates may be able to help me decide on a variety that would add some awesome! to the flavor of the following recipe. And maybe even why you think so??
12 oz. Briess Caramel 40
4 oz. Briess Caramel 80
3.15 lbs. Gold Malt Syrup (boil for 60 min.)
6 lbs. Gold Malt Syrup (boil for 15 min.)
1 oz. Yakima Magnum (60 min)
1 oz. Centennial (15 min)
1 oz. Cascade (15 min)
2 oz. Warrior (0 min)
