Pretty similar to what people have posted...I like summit, citra, and centennial. Any way you combine them or any two together tastes fantastic.

Just did a columbus/cascade IPA last week. Great combo

I like some dankness and pine with my citrus and fruit. Too much tropical fruity hops tastes like one note hop juice, instead of a harmony of hop flavors. You can go overboard on fruity hops... a little goes a long way, so I like them best at flameout since they don't dominate the final beer with this addition, but are not completely lost either.

So something like Apollo, Chinook, Simcoe in the boil, with the smallest touch of Amarillo and Citra at flameout along with the ACS mix. ACS mix exclusively in the dryhop.

Columbus, Simcoe, Centennial, & Chinook. Columbus at 60 and 30. Simcoe and Centennial at 15. Dry Hop with Simcoe, Centennial & Chinook (with a ratio of approx. 2:1:1). Simcoe, Citra, & Amarillo is also nice. Just did a Nelson Sauvin and Moteuka that smelled great.

What's that NZ Southern Cross like? I haven't been able to find them. I do want to try some of those Aussie and NZ hops one of these days.

I have a Big Red IIPA that is just about due for dry hopping. I have Columbus, Centennial, Citra, Simcoe, Amarillo and Zythos in the freezer. Which ones would you dry hop with?
