Default Pesticides and Hops?

Ok I know, organic... organic... organic.

No one wants to dump chemicals all over their gardens! But with my veggie garden I have always used some pesticides throughout the season. I make sure not to spray late in the season when picking gets close and I wash everything well before eating them. However, I do not know what pesticides can do to hops, I don't know how it effects their flavor and so on. Has anyone used anything to keep bugs under control? I was thinking about spraying the plants before they bud to protect the leaves?

Thanks!
