Default Hops Questions for BYO's Mr. Wizard?

I host a local craft beer radio show in Springfield Missouri, which also happens to be where BYO Magazine's Mr. Wizard is a brewmaster for Springfield Brewing Company.

He's a monthly guest on my show and this week, our topic of discussion is hops. If you could ask Mr. Wizard any question you wanted about hops, what would it be?

I can't promise to ask all of the questions, as the show is only an hour long, but I'll ask as many as I can in the course of our conversation.

If you're interested in tuning in, it will stream live on tagsgf.com and on Ustream (under TAGsgf). It is 4pm Sunday Central time. There will also be a podcast available next week on Tagsgf.com and on iTunes under tagsgf's podcast subscription.

Ask away.

No takers? I expected at least a few people would be interested.

Anything on El Dorado Hops would be great. They were covered in a talk by Stan Hieronymous at NHC. Brewing up an IPA with them shortly. Not a whole lot of info on them out there. Cheers

Here's one I have been wondering all summer: If isomerized hop acids skunk in sunlight, why can I boil a 90 minute hoppped wort in my backyard on a sunny day without skunking the beer? If temperature plays a role, should I be covering the wort when it is chilling with my immersion chiller hooked up to a garden hose?

I would like to see more discussion of how hops are scaled when changing recipe size. I know the standard answer is "divide by x" or multiply but I have heard that hops do not scale exactly linear like that and from my experience, I find they do not scale so simply either.

First Wort Hopping would make an interesting discussion

Also, flavor profiles (& etc) of newer hop varieties coming to market, especially some popular ones coming from New Zealand such as Nelson Sauvin
