Hops for dry hopping

Recommended Posts

Not sure the best forum to post this question but I am looking for a chart that will provide me with the key aroma characteristics of the best hops with which to dry hop. I see that some hops are good for bitterness and for flavor while others are good for only bittering and yet others are good only for flavoring (low alpha acids) but is there a list of hops considered really good for dry hopping? I am looking for tropical fruit notes.

Thanks to Creeps - Yes, that was my concern so I was hoping that there might be a chart that was published by some non proprietary group that was meant for educational purposes - and BDawg62 - the fact that this information is often produced by the packagers of hops means that if they don't sell the hop then they act as if the hop does not exist - Google simply offers to provide you with a link to information available - It does not itself create the information... But thanks for your suggestion. I had tried that approach but found it less than useful which is why I posted my query here...

You can also go to a homebrewing store website. Most should have the important info right up front. Like ritebrew.com does for me
