Bramling cross for flavoring and aroma. Makes for a very nice earthy currant flavor in ales.

there is a definite shortage of centennial this year. it's not quite as bad as citra/simcoe/amarillo, but centennial is a close fourth on that list. not all shops have them right now. they will run out. i bought a pound from yakimavalleyhops while i still could. hops direct have a decent supply of pellets on hand but they're limiting them to 1 per customer (just like citra/simcoe/amarillo). they're sold out of leaf.

+1 on Willamette - Cheap, flowering and fruity, and can be used in many different styles

Mt. Hood - Clean with hints of flower and spice; I like it in combo with 6-Row and flaked maize for a Semi-SMASH Cream Ale

Newport - Earthy and herbal; Great in American Browns, Robust Porters, and American Stouts; Can be used to bitter an IPA in a pinch

OK, maybe I stand corrected, NorthernBrewer does not have them, but I see them at Williams' Brewing, Midwest Supply, Niko's, Freshops.com, etc. etc.

But I see that they are not cheap so yeah, maybe a little shortage.

No love for Crystal so far? I think it's Jolly Pumpkins go to hop.

Sterling for sure for me. Next would be Apollo - great for bittering and in the dry-hop it smells like orange marmalade!

Maybe not at your LHBS, but you can always find centennial from somewhere. It was a little thin from some suppliers, while others had plenty. By the end of December, going into January you'll be able to find it everywhere again

Definitely going with Northern Brewer- just a great hop. I don't understand the harshness or woodsiness other people get from NB. It really adds an interesting touch to a lot of beers.

For lighter flavored beers, Mt. Hood can't be beat. You never see it used, though.
