Okay, so my very first brew was an Irish Red, and I could tell instantly that I wasn't fond of it. I didn't know at the time what it was but I knew that it reminded me of the hop additions.
Looking back, my Irish Red hops was Cascade.
Today I did my Rogue Mocha Porter clone (all-grain) and it used a style of hops I'd not worked with yet... Centennial. I ripped open the package and.. BAM. A smell I didn't like, that Cascade-like hop smell...
Having just tasted my hydrometer sample it has a VERY strong flavour of centennial hops, which tasted a lot like the Cascade I don't like.
Lo and behold. Hopunion lists Centennial as a "Super Cascade" and puts Amarillo right along with it.
Is amarillo similar in flavour to Cascade? Are there any other hop varieties I should avoid, KNOWING I don't like Cascade or Centennial?
