If you are looking for max flavor & aroma I would take a portion of those flameout and / or dry hops and do a hopstand at 82 c for 30 to 45 min. I have found this makes a world of difference.

Cheers

Might be good but seems like a lot going on in that malt bill that will compete with rather than complement the crazy load of hops. I'd probably go with pale and munich with a very small amount of carafa special to get you to red. The beer is 1.072 so there is going to be malty goodness from the pale all by itself.
