What is your favourite hop, and why?

I'll start! Keep in mind I've only been brewing for a month, but so far my favourite hop is Amirillo. I love the orange and tropical aromas! I also very much enjoy Citra!

Citra, but Simcoe is growing strongly on me. Makes a really nice IPA hop.

El dorado. It’s not as pungent as some of the other new school hops but if you layer in enough of it, it tastes like candy. Very bright and clear tasting. Which is perfect for pale ales because I like them on the bitter side of the style. It’s weakness is that it gets hidden behind hops like citra so when I blend it with others I will usually go with a 2:1 or 3:1 ratio.

Galaxy (very tropical flavors and aroma) and Mosaic (very fruity and sweet, with a great aroma) are my definite favs!

Zythos is another great one, with a great Citrus and Grapefruit flavor and smell.

Then you still have all the basic but greats such as: Citra, Simcoe, Amarillo, Cascade, Chinook, Falconers Flight.

All of these hops are great for IPA's and I usually use them with Pale Ales too, to help give it a bit of a citrus or fruity kick.

Happy Brewing!

Challenger is my pick. Spicy, fruity and really drinkable all purpose hop. Especially in bitters and anything British. But my choice is to blend hops. Fuggles and EKG pair really well together.

Idaho 7 holds a special place in my heart personally. The first time we used it in a pale ale, it was a total eye opener.
