Any of the other late hops you chose for this beer will do just fine. No need to overcomplicate things; divvy them up.

Amarillo is also a great option.

You received some great advice so far, but I'm curious as to what you are expecting from this beer? Tell us exactly what you want. Otherwise, it's just going to be about our personal preferences.

Good recipe. I would stick with a 90 minute boil while adding your bittering hops at 60 minutes. It will help with depth of malt flavor given that your chosen grist was rather subtle... which is a...

I was going to guess Devil Dancer, but it looked darker than I remembered. Maybe it's the lighting.

A sweet, sticky, highly hoppy sipper for sure with strong notes of alliums (onions & garlic).
