Default New Zealand Amber Ale

Has anyone ever used NZ hops in anything besides a pale ale or an IPA? I'd like to brew an amber ale, or something a little maltier than a pale ale but can't figure out what type of NZ hop would be the best bet. Any information would be much appreciated. I've heard great things about NZ hops but have never used any.

Hops conisdering:
- Nelson sauvin
- Horizon
- Pacific Jade
- Pacifica

I love NS and so far I've used it in a pale, IPA, & imperial saison with Citra. It's great and very unique for dry hopping as well. It'd be really interesting in an amber. Try Widmer's Nelson Imperial IPA to get a feel for it in a pretty malty example.

I hear great things about Galaxy too and can't wait to use the pound I have in my freezer!
