Default Most Desirable Hops for 2013

OK folks, besides Citra, what are the most desirable, fresh flavors, for 2013?
Everyone has their favorites, what's yours?

I'm a big fan of Columbus. Not really sure why, but they've always seemed to stand out to me.

Amarillo.
Book it.

Cheers!

[edit] (two pounds are safely on their way now that Farmhouse is shipping pre-orders...)

Well, since I hate citra, that's not one on my list!

The only hops I bought this year are amarillo, 2 pounds from hopsdirect. I already have a ton of hops, including 2.5 pounds of simcoe.

I tend to buy magnum (or another clean bittering hop variety), and some C-hops but this year my crop of centennial, chinook and cascade as phenomenal so I didn't buy any.

I have about 12 pounds of hops (maybe more) in my freezer right now, since the hopsdirect order came yesterday.

I still buy a few others like northern brewer and willamette, after the hops frenzy dies down a bit.

I've been on an Amarillo kick lately. Just bought a pound of that, northern brewer and cascade. I need to get some magnum...

Amarillo, Simcoe, or Cascade have been my personal favorites as of late. All go well in combination with one another or all together and even better with a small amount of Citra in the background.

Made a 100% Falconers Flight American Wheat and I was very impressed with the hop. Used .33 oz for bittering and .66oz for finishing. Definitely a more hop forward American Wheat, although it wasn't bitter sitting at 21 IBUs.

And although I didn't like it at first, Mosaic is starting to grow on me.
