I have brewed this beer twice and really like it. JA have you ever brewed it with Amarillo hops?
I sort of remember coming up with a recipe as a suggestion but I wouldn't have brewed it. Share a link to your recipe and I'll see if it rings a bell.

Nice! I think I purged some old recipes at some point. I think Amarillo would work great, adjusting for AA's. Other choices might be Centennial and I'd definitely try Lemon Drop for this recipe. I brew a Saison with Sorachi Ace and Lemon Drop and it's always very nice. The Sorachi brings an interesting herbal lemon/dill flavor and a lot of Lemon Drop in the dry hop gives very nice sweet citrus/orange blossom lemony aroma and flavor. the orange zest would really make that pop.
Thanks JA. My plan is Amarillo and will try the Lemon Drop in secondary.
As a follow up, I brewed this beer with Amarillo hops and a dry hop of 1 oz of Lemon Drop. The ending result is okay but I screwed up by making two changes to the original recipe. I'm not sure I appreciate the dry hop. In a few weeks I am gonna make it again with only the Amarillo hops and then move forward.
