I agree, I think I will try these again, just in 1/2 oz. doses. looking at my notes, i used it in a past beer, and didnt have an issue with them.

I'm a big fan of Chinook as well.

As far as dislikes, I'm not a fan of Fuggles (too...savory, I guess?) or anything that gives that onion flavor (Summit, or Citra if used wrong).

Sorachi Ace is a bit overpowering for me in a green beer. I don't mind it, but it needs some time to mellow.

Summit= Sweaty hippie armpit or unwashed goat testicles. Take your pick.

Is ... the hippie armpit attached to a girl? Maybe? No? Okay.

Summit: I'll agree with the onion / chive / garlic hate. Was one of the first hops I was able to peg as being not for me.

Moteuka: Soapy. Dirty. Dank.

EKG as a dry hop: Sickly sweet, almost like sour milk. Otherwise, I'm a huge fan of classic UK hops. Just brewed KingBrianI's "Common Room ESB" with EKG and Fuggles, and I'm looking forward to it.

Citra: As a bittering hop, there is some kind of dank, cat-pissy overtone to it, though I'm quite fond of it as a flavor/aroma hop.

Yea, I never bitter with Citra. I honestly don't understand why someone would.

I recently learned I don't like East Kent Goldings as a late addition hop. Not sure if its the aroma or the flavor it imparts that I dislike more, but I don't find it pleasant.

Summit just doesn't do it for me. Somewhere between patchouli oil and bongwater.

I've realized that beers brewed with Columbus are my least favorite.

nugget, galena, chinook, and centennial are my least favorite, maybe in that order. I really like at least one commercial beer bittered with nugget though, so I know it can be used appropriately.
