YES, great choices to try!!!

And on personal preference, Northern Brewer, Galena and Nugget are 3 of my most favorites!

Amarillo would be another I would like to try. I'll add that to my list. And yes, just to clarify, each test brew will be one single hop the entire boil. I've got lots of odd bags of hops in the fridge, so this may be a good way to use up them as well. I think I have some liberty, galena, cluster, nugget, and some others I could try.

Kent Goldings is one of my favorite aromma hops.
For bitter and flavor: Williamette, Cascade, Northern Brewer, Magnum and Galena are all very good.

I'd like to do the same thing this summer. I plan to do one with all Simcoe (it's sometimes described as "piney") and one with Amarillo.

I buy Columbus by the pound. It's a great bittering hop and not bad for flavor.

I agree, it's a great all-around hop. Excellent for bittering, flavor, and aroma. And with its high AA, a little goes along way.

A while back, I put together a recipe similar to Arrogant Bastard, but using all Columbus rather than Chinook. That computer died, but I'm hoping to salvage my recipes from the hard drive.

As a personal preferance, I kinda like the piney flavors so I'm looking forward to the all chinook brew, and want to try the simcoe, having never used it. What is the flavor profile of amarillo?

They say "supercharged Cascade". It has a slightly higher AA but similar charcteristics...I guess. Personally I think the aroma is pretty different. In my limited use of Amarillo so far, the bitterness seems pretty soft.

I always hear "grapefruity". Would you agree? If I recall correctly, you used it for bittering. Have you used it for flavor or aroma?

Doesn't really matter to me. I've loved all the big PNW hops I've tried. Just trying to further the discussion.

Sounds good to me. One of my favorite IPA's is Bridgeport's and it has a very "grapefruity" taste to it. (Is grapefruity even a word? ) Anyways, amarillo is definately going on the list.
