I've been bittering with warrior, never tried it as an aroma hop. How does it smell/taste in a brew?

I like citra



....ok just kidding, for me it's Cascade. It is a do anything hop. Porters, stouts, barleywine, and IPA's/IIPA's it works in all those beers.

I made a beer with pale and rye malts, t-58, and willamette that came out really nicely. And at $.85/lb for malt, under $1/oz for the hops, and $2 for the yeast it was well under $20 for the batch with all the other costs factored in.

Who doesn't appreciate Saaz? That's not cool. I've got an all Saaz strong golden ale lagering.

Apollo and Horizon are excellent. Apollo is citrusy/dank/piney, Horizon is grapefruity/smooth/clean, both are highly aromatic. But neither of them are talked about as much as the typical C hops or Simcoe/Amarillo.

Styrian Goldings in a Bitter or pale (think GI Honkers Ale)

Styrian Goldings is way under-appreciated and is good in so many beers

I've been playing with Sorachi Ace on and off for about a year now. It's like soy sauce or reverb. A little too much is a lot too much. But just a touch (rarely more than 20% of the entire hop total) at 5 min gives a really interesting, distinctive dill flavor that I find really intriguing. I like maybe an ounce in a hoppy wheat or an ounce and a half in a C-hop IPA.

I'm a big fan of Tettnanger. The Riwaka hop of New Zealand is one of my favorites. It's a smooth one and great dual purpose variety.
