This is a "west coast rye amber" kinda thing if that helps. I will be dry hopping 2 ounces, one ounce of columbus, and one other hop, I need help with the "other". Please no other recipe suggestions, the beer is already brewed, I'll be dry hopping this weekend, and still haven't made up my mind. So I came here for help

If this was your beer, what would be your second ounce of dry hop?

I personally prefer Columbus as a bittering hop, so I vote all Cascade!

I would go with Cascade to get the citrus twang.

I vote Centennial. I like to dry hop with the type of hops used in the boil for some reason. I guess if Centennial is good enough to use as a boil/flameout addition, it's good enough to dry hop with. Just my $.02
Bottled: Lots of stuff
On tap: Hefeweizen, Centennial Blonde
Up next: Quality Beverages

Mt Hood would give you a greater variety of aromas than any of the other choices. The others are all similar to each other. (not saying they're exactly the same kiddies)
