Title: Most Floral Hops
Post by: cmand on February 23, 2011, 07:17:09 pm
I am putting together a recipe for the weekend and I'd like to replicate a beer I had at a club meeting.  The guy made a fantastic pale ale with an extremely floral nose to it.  So much so I could not take my nose out of the  beer.  I have not seen the guy since.

What is your guess at to what variety(s) he may have used?

EKG
Amarillo
Cascade
Willamette
Crystal
Ahtanum

Brewing Classic Styles has a hop flavor 'wheel' in it which would help with thinking about the relative attributes of a hop variety.
