Default What is your favorite Hops?

I am just about ready to drink my PA that I made with sorichi (sp) hops. I used the same recipe for grain, yeast, and whatnot but I switched up the hops to see what the difference will be. I'm looking forward to drinking both types of PA side by side to taste the difference.

What are some of the different hops you use for a PA?

I'm interested to hear what you think about the sorachi ace pale ale. If it's good, then I would like to see your recipe. I just bought some of these hops and that sounds right up my alley.

As far as my favorite, I haven't brewed with too many different kinds, but I would have to say that my favorite is probably summit, which I made a delicious pale ale with.

I never thought I was an English pale ale type of guy... then I made a recipe using East Kent Goldings and Fuggles. I really, really loved that beer and will be brewing many similar to it. Cascade, Centennial, and Amarillo are also easy favorites.

for american pale ales - Cascade, hands down. The classic.
Simcoe and Columbus make good beers, too, though I'm not a huge fan of Amarillo and other really tropical-fruity hops like US Goldings.

For English beers, I really dig Styrian Goldings. Fuggles are supposedly pretty similar, and I also really like Challenger, Northdown, and First Gold hops.

Fuggles are awesome. Northern Brewer, too.

Of the American hops, Centennial and Amarillo.

Centennial is my #1 for IPAs
Cascades for my Pale Ales
Fuggles for bitters and esb's
EKG's for porters and Stouts

If I could only have one....

Cascades b/c of its versitility

It's hard to say which hop is my favorite, that changes all the time. But I can tell you what hop I buy the most of: it's Willamette. Red Ale, American Wheat, Brown, Stout, they all work fantastic with Willamette.
There is another thing about Willamette: mix it with Cascade and you have totally different and awesome taste, unlike Willamette or Cascade alone. Try it in IPAs, APA, American Wheat etc. you will be surprised how much better your beers can be because of this hop mix.
