Default Your Favorite Underappreciated Hops

With all the pellet release hype going on I'm wondering what your favorite unsung hero of the hop world is and for what style beer.

I've got a Brewer's Gold and Strisselspalt Biere de Mars lagering for about another month that smells heavenly.

Brewer's Gold has intrigued me for a while, as well as Pacific Gem. I'm planning a black IPA around them to see if I really do get a black currant / blackberry character.

Ditto on Bramling Cross. I would have to say Nelson Sauvin and Summit; I like those in small doses combined with other hops when dry hopping.

northern brewer-as a dry hop, most people usually use it for bittering but has an amazing aroma well suited for english ales

You know with all the simcoe, citra, centennial, and amarillo love going around, it's been a long time since I've brewed a cascade heavy beer. Wondering if I should stock up on some cascade since the price is right and I don't have to fight to find it...

I really like cascade..... And I know it isn't a single hop, but I have a house IPA wih zythos hop blend that is rockin'. Tasty and easy to use.

Southern Cross (NZ)! Can't say enough.

Summit is very nice also.

I love Challenger. It goes in all my hippy English ales.

Another I really like is Northern Brewer. I don't care for it alone but it adds complexity to any hoppy beer.
