This list Could be very large.  Please vote for your favorite Flavor/Aroma hop for American IPAs.  Usually this is done using more than one hop so on this poll vote for 2.

My favorite IPA creation of mine makes heavy use of Falconer's Flight and Mosaic. Great combo along with Citra.

Showing my probationary status here, but I have never used Cascade, and thought it was more of a bittering hop.

Wow, that shows how far things have come !  When I started, Cascade was the dominant LHBS hop by far for ales. Recipe books had Cascade in most recipes, appropriate or not.

I think that's a lot of why I got burned out on Cascade roughly a decade ago and haven't really used it much (at home) since. Not that there's anything wrong with it per se; I just feel like with the progress that's been made in hop breeding over the past few years, I can cherry-pick whatever aspect of Cascade I want in a particular recipe, and select another hop to get me there.
