Hey brewers!

I am going to do an Amber Ale tomorrow morning.
I am looking to increase it to a "hoppy amber ale" so far it has;

20g Williamette @ 60min
33g Williamette @ 20min

I have a fair bit of Amarillo, Cascade, Simcoe, Nelson Sauvin, Williamette hops in stock.

Looking for more aroma I think.

Any recommendations would be greatly appreciated!

Cheers Ben

Hay mate I do a pale ale with a combo of cascade late in the boil and then dry hopped with nelson sauvin.
Turns out fairly tasty to me.
Hope it helps.

Cascade and Simcoe are great together and work well with williamette. Used in equal amounts at 10 minutes and flameout to your desired IBU will be magic.

Cascade always works well as a late addition in most darker/malty american style beers. If you are going to use simcoe as advised above I would highly recommend that you only use a small amount as if used in large amounts you may get too much of a pine like flavour and IMO would be off putting in an amber ale.
