I love me some simcoe! I recently went through a pound of Chinook, and now that's on my fav list. Willamette is my "classic" favorite along with (of course) Saaz. Cascade is OK, but I think Chinook has replaced it in my brewery.

It really depends all on the style for me. US golding work great in a fruit beer and I can't imagine an APA without cascade or centennial.

However, I wouldn't like a APA with US goldings or a fruit beer loaded with centennial. Yuck.

Come to think of it, I can't think of a beer that Sterling'd be good in.

Simcoe
Amarillo
Chinook
Centennial
Cascade
Nugget
Magnum
Saaz

Can't really stand English hops, but I do like Willamette(fuggles) in my Brown Ale. It seems to pair well with Cascade

If I may add something to the original question...

WHY do you like the hops you like?

Amarillo's got a passionfruit/tropical fruit-punch thing going on that I really don't like. Cascade and centennial don't.
