Citra, Cascade, Amarillo and Summit.
My favorites are the Cascade and German Magnum hops
Galaxy. Between hf double galaxy and nebco galaxy pale ale I'm sold!
Not even close for me. Citra by a long shot
Toss up between Mosaic, Riwaka, Galaxy, and Nelson Sauvin. Honorable mention to Simcoe.
Although I really like Citra, I feel that many times it doesn't offer as much citrus as the name might suggest. Obviously how a brewer uses it is a huge part of the equation, but generally speaking I find it's not always a sure bet to a super citrusy beer. Maybe its name sets my expectations too high.
easier to say the hops i don't care for: Currently its Columbus and Northern Brewer at the top of the list
Citra - Zombie Dust, Oddside Citra Pale
Not a fan of others on their own, but they can make some fantastic blends
Simtra Triple IPA from Knee Deep Brewing CO
Citra for it's tropical juiciness, but another good one is Falconers Flight after trying the single hop On the Wings of Armageddon from DC Brau.
Falconer's Flight isn't a hop variety, but rather a blend of various hop varieties and is sold exclusively by a company called Hopunion.
Thanks for the info!
Either way, makes a damn good beer!
Do you know of any other brews that use Falconer's Flight???
None as good as the one you mentined above, from what I've tasted anyway...OTWOA nailed it.
East Kent Golding (Danzig hops) lol
Nelson Sauvin, Citra & my new fave Mosaic. Tough to mess any of those up.
Knee Deep's Simtra - http://beeradvocate.com/beer/profile/23200/78377
Is this even a question? Citra obviously, and I vote for Zombie Dust. I also enjoy Chinook and traditional Tettnanger, as I enjoy a good spicy/pungent hop kick every once in a while. But Citra is the perfect hop, period.
Duet is one of my favorites so Simcoe and Amarillo hops for me
I like this setup...can anyone else name an awesome trifecta of beers for each hop. I've never had Hopslam, but I love Jai Alai and Pliny...so I'm assuming that makes me a fan of Simcoe.
I don't know about a trifecta of beers but how about the trifecta of hops goes to hallertau, tettenang and saaz. (spelling - I am not responsible)
Put me down for Citra! was simcoe, also props to Mosaic (Fresh Squeeze aroma is off the hook!)
I'd like to nominate Citra, for the zillionth time. (kern river citra)
Definitely Amarillo...love it in pales and wheats
Citra and Centennial. ho hum.
The Citrusy hops.... I think Sucks is a good representative of them.
i was going to say ... give me some good noble hops in a malty pilsener, and the rest can play for second place
Saaz,love it in the bavarian styles
+1 for Citra
Gives several examples that utilize FF. Nothing compares to OTWOA though. Love that beer.
lately it is mosaic
Disagree, but understand where you're coming from....I would choose a more hop focused style for this thread every time. That said, noble hops are amazing in the right beer and deserve some rep
Honestly, one of my dream beers is basically a Czech pilsner, traditional in every single way, except that near bottling time it is modestly dry-hopped with Citra. Same lagering period, same malt bill, same early and late boil hops....just add Citra.
Citra and Columbus are my two favorites. both great in different ways
Thanks for sharing this. Interesting info.
