Default Which Hop Should I double up on?

There's no right answer to this question.

Currently I grow Mt. Hood, Sterling, Cascade, and Chinook.

This year I'm adding:

Centenial, Fuggle, Perle, Pride of Ringwood, Willamette, Magnum, Zeus, and Newport.

If that isn't crazy enough some of these threads have talked about growing hops up the chimney. It occured to me I can do that!

My chimney faces North and has a huge tree in front of it. It doesn't get great light at all. Whatever I grow here will get a low yield, but it will be something and I figured thats better than nothing.

More cascade is the no brainer, that seems to be a beer favorite. I'm a fan of Fuggle. The other hops I'm adding this year I've never worked with and I'm mainly adding them because I can, I have no opinion on them. Any thoughts on which hop might make a good 'bonus' harvest?

Comments are always appreciated.
