Default Bulk hops order... opinions?

Hey all... I'm looking to place a direct order of hops from hops direct and am thinking of getting 5 pounds. I want at least 1 high alpha acid, 1 medium, and 1 low and possibly 2 general purpose hops. I like pale ale's and IPAs but am also love trying other styles (recently have done a stout, porter, brown ale). I've already got Cascade and Citra on my mind but really haven't thought of anything else. I'd like to have hops that can be substituted for other things and that would allow me to brew a wide variety of stuff.

All that being said...

What 5 hops would you order if you were gonna be stuck with 5# for a while?

I'm an IPA fiend, but I also like English milds and pales.

Amarillo
Cascade
Magnum
Willamette
US Goldings

Columbus, Citra, Centennial, Cascade and Warrior.

If you like pales and IPA's those will do ya well. Warrior is an insanely clean bittering hop. Columbus is a high AA% that can be used multipurpose. Citra is studly. Centennial may be my favorite hop of all and is a great multipurpose. Cascade is a good medium AA% and general purpose. Low AA% hops are generally pretty cheap and should be easy to find. You could also substitute either columbus or warrior for Amarillo too. That hop is crazy good.

Bottom line, there are a ton of options and you cannot go wrong. Go to google and type in "Characteristics of Hops" and you'll get a ton of information about how different types are used and the AA% on average. Good luck!

Very impressed with New Zealand's harvest this year. Wakatu and Pacifica stand out. You won't be dissapointed

Hard to say. But I use willamette cascade and centennial allot so those 3 for sure. Then most likely Amarillo and goldings.

Got my hop order. 11 lbs Cascade, 5 Citra, 5 Columbus, 5 Sorachi Ace, 5 Magnum, 2 Centennial, 2 Willamette and 1 Waimea. Good to go for the next bit. Waimea is for trial purposes. It is supposed to have an amazing grapefruit pop.
