Looking for a solid hop combo for an American Brown extract recipe...most Brown Ale recipes I've seen use English hops...looking for an American combo...any suggestions?

Here are the steeping grains I'm using:

12 oz Victory
4 oz Chocolate
4 oz Roasted Barley
4 oz Crystal 120L

Actually...could also use a good yeast suggestion.

some combo of willamette, liberty, nugget, mt hood would work.

I'd prolly go notty or S-04 on the yeast unless you want that american too. WLP001 would be fine in that case, maybe WLP-051 for a lil more esters

When I think of American Hops, I think of Chinnok, Centennial, Cascade... I've made a Janet's Brown Ale recipe with Cascade and Centennial and it was pretty good. You have to have a taste for them though. I'm actually looking to make my next brown ale an English style brown.

I love all 3 of those options...what sort of hop schedule do you think?

Chinook for bittering?
Cascade/Centennial for aroma/flavor?
