I will second, or third, the Mt Hood or the Crystal.
Totally convinced here
that these two Hallertauerish partners yield fantastic results.

Have fun. 8)

I am definitely leaning towards Columbus and Mt. Hood with a third in the mix, possibly one of the citrusy ones, Centennial or Citra perhaps. 

I agree the Simcoe/amarillo combo is awesome.  I brewed a pale ale with Simcoe/Amarillo/Cascade, but I wanted something a bit different this time around. 

I am now wondering about the yeast... I always use 1056, and there's nothing wrong with it, but what about Wyeast 1272, 1332 or 1450?  Any opinions on these to help someone who's never used them?

I've been using WY1272 with good results. It's similar to 1056 but clears a little quicker.

WY1272--I really like the beer I make with this strain.

I'd like to try it with Mt hood someday. Maybe we should ask Denny to bring a sample to Seattle.  8)

It just so happens that I'll be brewing 5-10 bbl. of Rye IPA in conjunction with Rogue as one of the conference commemorative beers.  As well as a corny of my own for club night.

I'm a big fan of the way 1450 plays with rye.

Considering the name of that yeast, couldn't you have just ended your sentence early?  As in "I'm a big fan of 1450"  :)

Man...I forgot that I actually brewed your Rye IPA a couple of years ago. Time flies, but I remember that beer well and the hop character was excellent as I recall.  :)
