With so many different hops available these days, it's impossible for each homebrewer to brew all of them single-handedly. Jim's Beer Kit is a great place to read what worked for other homebrewers, but it's especially handy when commercial brewers do this "dirty-work" for us. I taste every single-hop beer I can find, and post ratings to Ratebeer, which serves as a handy online resource whenever I need to remember my impressions of a certain hop. It occured to me these thoughts might benefit other nerdy homebrewers on this forum too.
Disclaimer: these are my own subjective opinionated conclusions, based on just one sample, at one specific moment in time. I am frequently surprised by how much another brewer's results differ, even using the same single hop variety. Your mileage may vary, and I certainly don't think my taste buds are superior to anyone else's.

Tasted on tap at Bottleworks during Vintage Bike Night. It poured a mostly clear golden colour, slight chill haze with white foam, lasting with lots of lace. Crisp grainy sweet malts, just enough caramel candy sweetness to support the hops bitterness, but a very hops-forward balance nonetheless. Black currant, grapefruit and other citrus fruit like so many American hops, but also lots of black pepper and floral notes like a noble hop, tropical fruitiness like a southern hemisphere hop, and even some cool weedy, herbal tea notes. I am extremely impressed with Equinox/HBC366CV. Delicious and complex, nearly a Mosaic substitute, perhaps even more interesting than Mosaic, in my opinion. Despite the recipe simplicity, this is a great IPA in its own right.
