Default Your favorite dry hop?

What hop is your favorite to dry hop with and why? Describe their aroma profile, if you will. I'm debating what I want to dry hop with for my APA that's in primary right now. I love a piney earthy mix, but I'm not sure how well that would go with my APA since I've flavored and aroma hopped the wort with cascade. Should I just stick with cascade for the dry hop or could you suggest something else? Just looking for ideas.

FYI, my IBU's for my APA are approx. 40. Not a big APA, just want a great aroma!

I love a grapefruit aroma too, but I really want something earthy and piney that will go great with my cascade aroma/flavoring additions. Further FYI, I did .50 oz cascade @ 15min, 1.0 oz cascade @ 5 min, and .50 oz cascade @ 2min.

I vote chinook. My second choice would be northern brewer.

I find chinook to be very piney when the beer is young, and I usually try to move through dry hopped beer fast. A lot of people describe it as woody or smokey, but all I've noticed from it is the smell of fresh cut doug fir.

Darn trigger beat me to it. Can't go wrong with centennials either though.

For the last couple of American IPA's I've done, I flavored with cascade and amarillo, but for a twist, I dry hop with a bunch of SAAZ and Chinook. Neat profile that most don't quite expect. I love the spice of SAAZ
Cheers

I love Amarillo and Nelson Sauvin.

I love the fruitiness of both. Amarillo has that great citrusy quality and the NS hops smell like over ripe pineapples and passion fruit.

Nugget. love the earthy, flowery smell. this is unusual for dry hopping I know, but I did it once on a whim and now I'm hooked.
