I'm still fairly new to brewing so I've only used a few. Cascades, Amarillo, and Saaz come to mind. Just curious what some favorites out there are and what flavors they impart so I can continue to expand my horizons.

Try Simcoe. There is something about cat urine that goes great in Pale Ales.

I'm not sure that describing it as cat urine is a great sales tactic.

Amarillo, Cascade, Centennial, Citra and Simcoe
Most of those have a nice citrus/grapefruit aroma and flavor

That would have to cascade. I use it in many of the beers I make.

Just tried German Tradition; liked it a lot in a SMaSH I did.

I just brewed an APA with Citra Hops and I was very pleased with the results.

I like the Zew Zealand Varietals: Rakau, Pacific Gem, NZ Saaz, NZ Hallertau. THey have a fruitier rather than citrusy quality.
