I did an IPA with a high alpha hop from New Zealand called Pacific Gem and EKG for flavor, aroma and dry hopping - it was a nice combination.

Magnum, Sterling, and Crystal is a good combo. More spicy/floral than earthy.

Columbus... maybe
Right-on. I have dry-hopped with Columbus before, and the beer tasted like a christmas tree. Very piney. You do get maybe a little bit of citrus, but nothing like centennial/cascade.

Primary 1: House Ale (yay!)
Primary 2: empty
Primary 3: empty
Primary 4: empty
Bottle Conditioning: Apfelwein
Bottle Conditioning: Apfelwein + Blueberry
Kegged/Drinking: Partigyle Brown Ale
Conditioning: New House Barley Wine
Conditioning: Ghetto canned kit bitter (Surprisingly getting better w/ age)
Just Finished: Edwort's Apfelwein
Up next: More House Ale ?!?
