Default Hops extract recommendations

I'm looking to use hops extract and was wondering if anyone had a recommendation on which brands/types are best. Looking for Columbus if possible.

Thanks!

I'm also curious. Anyone out there experiment with hop extracts ala Pliny?

Hop oils or extracts? Hop extracts are used for bittering and have little or no aroma. They are also almost always in the tetra form, so the type of hop used really doesn't make any difference. Hop oils can be difficult to find, but Hop Union makes good ones.
