I'm sure this has been done before, but if for some very sad and crazy reason there was only one hop variety left on earth the brew with what would you choose and why? I know this is tough because there are too many good varieties to choose from... For me it would be Amarillo, moderate AA's and a great aroma hop as well!

Fuggles, just because it would annoy a lot of people and cause hybridization to occur more rapidly.

Amarillo is nice, but for me it would have to be Centennial or Cascade.

Man it was a toss up for me between Amarillo, and Cascades. But the higher AA's of Amarillo is what does it for me. They both are a nice aroma hop as well.

Willamette. I have flavors of the month, but I always come back to Willamette.

Centennial. Then Chinook. Why? If I was limited to making only one beer forever, it would be an IPA. And these 2 hops are what I use to make my IPAs, primarily.
