    Depends on the beer.

    For American IPAs, I am really liking Mosaic.

    It's a toss up between Citra and Motueka for me.

    You didn't specify bittering or aroma, that makes a big difference. (IMO)

    Citra and cascade are my favorites. Simcoe is one that I don't agree with the hype. Simcoe gets way too catty for me. I really prefer citra for the flavor additions(opposed to bittering) but cascade fits the bill for any addition. Magnum is great for clean bittering.

    Centennial. I've got a love hate thing going on with Citra. I find that it falls off the cliff really early, and when it does it becomes absolutely undrinkable
