I am gearing up to produce my first batch of beer since January and I had an IPA with Nelson and Southern Cross hops in the recipe. I finally scored with the Nelson from Rebel Brewer but they do not have the SC that I need. Do any of you have any suggestions as to a hop that might mirror some of the characteristics of the Southern Cross hop?

Thanks as always,

Sorachi Ace will do the same as Southern Cross more or less when paired with Nelson. Or you could order Southern Cross from

Either way, you will win.
