Default Lemon hops??

Hi all,
What are the hops that give off a lemony/citrusy( is that a word? ) type flavour?

A number of American hop varieties have a citrusy flavor, such as Cascade, Centennial, and Amarillo. I personally think Stone IPA has a distinct lemony flavor, so whichever hops they use for that would be good as well, although I'm not sure exactly what they are.

It tastes like the backside of a lemon peel. You can interpret "backside" as meaning either "pith" or "ass"; both are equally applicable.

Definately lemon, but with a REALLY bad bitterness, not like a hop bitterness, not quite an astrigency, just really like citrus pith.

A local brewpub did a sarachi ace pale that was supposedly very citrusy and lemony..and tasty. Unfortunately I went the night that the keg kicked and didn't get to sample.

I havent tried all the hops that were listed as having a citrusy flavor...but of the ones I have used, Cascade is the best in my opinion.

Cascade is the workman's hop: dependable, versatile, and mid-strength. Gets used all the time.

I forgot about Sarachi Ace. It has a major lemony component, and if that's all you're looking for, use that. There's also Summit, one of my favorite hops, which is about 18% alpha acids, and has an orange/tangerine flavor. It is awesome in IPAs.
