    Hey guys. Looking to brew my first own IPA recipe and I'm having a little trouble picking out the best hop for my beer. I have my IBU's in check but I'm really working for that flavor and aroma now. Would you suggest Galaxy Hops or Amarillo? And how much for how long should I dry hop it?

    Those two actually work well together. I have always been a fan of Amarillo in my IPA's, but have recently started to use Galaxy more. Especially when brewing for hot weather. I find the galaxy adds a little more fruity flavour to the mix than straight out Amarillo, so combined they add a nice blend. My last APA's i have been using Galaxy and Willamette, which really is a nice mix.

    So if it were me, I'd be adding the Amarillo and Galaxy in the last 10 mins. Then some again at 0 mins. Then i'd dry hop galaxy.

    Cheers
