Never met a hop that I didn't like. I've never once experienced this cat piss phenomenon that everyone loves to hate. Simcoe is probably my #1 stick-my-nose-in-the-bag-and-inhale hop. Are you guys all using old oxidized bargain hops?

My wife is a hop hater. Fresh, plug, pellet, dried cone, bittering, aroma, flavor. Vehement hater. She especially hated amarillo. I opened a pack in the kitchen today and she got up and left. She was 15' away. Like a drug dog nose.

She has a powerful aversion to cilantro. I think there's some relationship to the hop hate and her dislike of that. Seriously. It's that grassy, pungent thing or something.

This.

I cannot handle cilantro. Just one lousy leaf in a dish and I will not be able to eat it.

Duet uses Amarillo and Simcoe exclusively. The only Alpine beer I'm aware of that uses Nelson is called "Nelson" (and it's fantastic).

So much fuggle hate. I like to pair fuggle and ekg. I'm growing fuggle, and centennial.

willamette doesn't do much for me, but I haven't come across anything I really hate.

My wife also has a very strong aversion to cilantro, but is a huge hop-head. She loves super hoppy IPA's and the smell of hops when I'm measuring them out.

Add me to the list of those who don't care for Cascade. I wouldn't say I hate them, but they should NEVER be used as a bittering hop IMHO. I think Great Lakes ruined their Dortmunder Gold by bittering with Cascade.

I dislike Sorachi Ace strongly. It tastes like coconuts with a splash of Tide detergent.
