In the brews of 2017, my most used hop was Magnum [rofl] but that's because it's my preferred bittering hop.

As to flavour and aroma hops, It would be tied between Pilgrim and Progress, as they get used in my "house" bitter which I made the most times last year, with challenger following quite closely.  All the rest were a heinz variety of things I tried on a whim [smile]

( I guess I can also nominate a "used most of" hops as well - which would be the Bath Haaz blend Fantasia - simply because I hit a test brew with all 100g of hops I had in stock to get a feel for it [smile] )

Got plenty of new styles in the freezer to try in 2018 tho.
Beer is like porn - you can buy it easily enough, but its so much more fun to make it [wink]

Good point, I didn't think of that. Mine would be Warrior for US beers and Target for English beers, bittering wise.

I have to admit Magnum is my go to bittering hop in most brews, it's so cheap normally.

Yep, clean bittering and so unintrusive, flavourwise, you'd be hard pressed to find it, especially with the bigger aroma hops.  In honesty, it was our discussions wey back that prompted me to move over from using Challenger for bittering [wink]
