If you were to brew a pale or amber and wanted to restrict yourself to just one hop for all of your additions, and you wanted to brew something you would really enjoy drinking, which hop would you choose?

An amber, I'd go with Mt. Hood (not listed!). A pale, I'd go with Cascade, hands down.

I went with Columbus. It's a massive hop....like a high alpha Cascade. Very clean bittering, and can be used for flavor/aroma in small doses. A little would go a long way!

Man, now you're giving me ideas......

Yes, I would've added Mt. Hood, but 10 items is the limit on a poll.

If anyone has an alternate choice not listed above, feel free to mention it.

Me too man...Cascade rules. My other faves are Northern Brewer and Mt. Hood. I happen to be growing the latter 2 so hopefull I'll have a beer soon that I can use my own home-grown hops too.

I've recently noticed EKGs being hard to find fresh. Freshops doesn't offer them right now and all I can find on the Net is pellets. Has anyone heard anything? Was there a shallow crop this past season?
