Okay, we're getting there, folks! Now we have to decide WHICH hops to use in the beer. I've allowed for multiple voting, and I figure the top three will be the winners. If anyone has suggestions that aren't listed, throw them in there, but the ones I listed seem to be the most likely due to previous consideration.

If you're going for a Hoppy IPA it should include UK varieties. Fuggles, Kent.

My understanding was that this was more of an APA at this point. Maybe I'm misunderstanding? Plus, ten is most choices you can have. Sorry Orfy.

I voted for Amarillo, Columbus and Simcoe only because all of my APAs usually have some type of Chinook, Centennial and Cascade variety.

I would vote for NO Cascade in this beer since it seems like every common APA uses it and we should go off the beaten path. Just my two cents.

Agreed jeffg, Cascade is the run of the mill stuff. I love it, but we need change. I voted Columbus , Simcoe, Amarillo in that addition order. Gooood hops.

My two cents:

Northern Brewers are a good neutral hop. If we're really looking for the malt flavor to come thru, we should look at hops that don't add much residual flavor, like Northern Brewer, EK Goldings, Fuggles, Willamette, Cluster... those types IMO.

Saaz would be a cool finishing hop in this I think (though definitely not an APA hop... and not neutral).

I voted Columbus, Simcoe and Amarillo as well. But I would like to try those Sorachi's. I've never used them and my LHBS has never heard of them.
