Getting a bit tired of the bright, citrus hops in my IPA's. Would like something with some real "dank" as I've heard it described. Something that brings to mine the Pacific Northwest, lush damp forest sort of thing. Resiny?

I'm assuming Columbus is the hop to get this done?

If you can manage to find Hercules hops, those are nasty. had to get mine from a Brewery.

Tried Magnums this weekend. They were pretty sticky but not like the Hercules. Stacking Amarillo and Simcoe in the end is a nice change from the Cs.

I am a big fan of the columbus dank. I have an all columbus IPA on tap right now as it were.

No Hercules, but I have the following in bulk:

Columbus
Centennial
Amarillo
Cascade
Simcoe
Willamette
Citra
Nugget
Northern Brewer

Care to describe the flavor?

For a NW IPA, I target this Ale. It is a NW IPA.

Organic Hopworks IPA

Our namesake IPA is a Northwest classic. Generous additions of Amarillo, Centennial, and Cascade hops find their way into the kettle, hop-back, and dry-hop. This judicious use of the “brewers spice” creates rich and resinous flavors of citrus fruit and pine. The finest organic Canadian pilsner malt and organic Munich and Caramel malts then bring balance to your new favorite beer.

6.6% ABV

15 Degrees Plato OG

75 IBU

BendBrewer have you had Breakside IPA? In my googling, it sounds like this is a great beer. I emailed the brewery to see if they would share the recipe

Just found the Green Flash West Coast IPA clone which looks like it might fit the bill too.

I get a lot of dank from Oskar Blue's GUBNA. All Summit hops. Some people get onion/cat piss so YMMV.

Never tried Breakside. If forced to buy one I go with a bottle of HUB. Locally, I dig Tony's IPA from Boneyard.

hhhhmmm...Its hard to describe. The bitter is solid and perhaps a little harsh, but that is because my Columbus is 16% AA. The flavor itself is this somewhat musty flavor/aroma. I would consider it something like "forest floor" and forgive the unflattering terms, but "cat urine". I have always thought of columbus like a darker/heavier simcoe. Not quite as bright, just a little more musty.
