Combination of hops to create an "orange" flavor

That's a real good point. Maybe go with some darker crystal malt in the 60-80 range too to leave a hint of caramel.


Wait, is there a reason you don't just, you know, use oranges?

Hops that I know give an "orange" type flavor from experience and reading various hop profiles are:

Cascade (probably more grapefuit?)
Summit (orange/tangerine, hoping to avoid the garlic/BO/Onion)
Pacific Jade

Tenatively planning on using a 2:1:1 ratio of Amarillo:Cascade:Summit, but could possibly substitute one of the NZ varieties. 

Thoughts anyone?


EDIT:  I will also be adding some fresh orange zest at 5min before flameout.  Probably 2-3 oranges?

I am. I would just like to compliment it with the hops.....

Besides, where is the challenge in just using oranges/zest with all the wonderful hop flavors available to us as brewers today?  I mean, we can use Belma hops to create a strawberry-flavored beer.

So, in theory we should be able to do the same with creating an orange flavor, no? Grapefruit isn't that far from oranges.  In theory, I would like to create a "fruit" beer without adding "fruit" if I don't have too.

Styrian Goldings have some orange aroma without some of the less desirable notes of Summit although it isn't as much in your face with the orange.
