I love me some citra.......like everyone. But, there are great hops that are going under utilized. Cascade and Centennial are still great (love to use them with citra). Also, Magnum, glacier, and liberty are favorites of mine that are always available.

+1 on the Glacier! A really amazing hop that moves well between american and english beers.

Cascade + Centennial. The combination is amazing, even if you use a VERY heavy hand. Union Jack and SN Celebration re two awesome commercial examples of the combo. You can't go wrong, and both hops are available 99.2% of the time

It's a modified version of EdWort's kolsch. 11 gallon batch with more grain and hops and fermented at 62*
I can't keep the stuff around.
The other one I do is an Imperial Pilsner with Perle and Tet.

Centennial is not available anywhere close go 99% of the time, it is almost as hard to get as Citra, Amarillo, or simcoe.

Huh? You can get Centennial at any of the online retailers throughout the year, even late in the summer. I haven't seen a shortage of it.

I was gonna say.... all this talk about citra and centennial and sorachi ace and nelson.... those are OVER appreciated hops. All great in their own right, but everyone loves them. Nugget is a standby for me and my amber ale. Something that I thought was really interesting was Bullion, with its currant like flavor. In fact... I might do a mix with nelson sauvin for a nice bright fruity blonde, without any actual fruit.
