Doesn't really matter to me. I've loved all the big PNW hops I've tried. Just trying to further the discussion.
I used some 7% AA Cascade in my honey ale 1/2 ounce each for 60 and 30 minutes. Tasting it out of the primary, it was like drinking grapefruit juice. I mean a dead ringer for grapefruit juice. I hope it mellows some! I know they aren't supercharged Cascade but they are pretty strong.

ekg is my favorite hop. i use it in ounces of two to bitter and one ounce increments for flavor and aroma.

columbus is another great hop, prolly number two in my book for all aspects of hopping.

Seemed to hear a lot about Sorachi Ace but never got much in the way of good descriptions of flavor and aroma when brewing with that hop. I suggest it (SORACHI ACE) as one for your consideration.

Great idea, here!

Anyone ever do a simpler hop-tea type of tasting to get a feel for the bitterness and taste of these various hops. Not sure if it would be realistic, but It'd be a hella-lot cheaper and quicker than making a bunch of brew batches and might avoid the "what a waste of time and money that batch was" possibility.

Simcoe, Amarillo, and I think Horizon is under utilized.

I've actually been thinking about doing a series of this same thing, using a single hop for a bunch of light IPAs (Probably around 1.060 and 50IBU or so).
