Hop nose is achieved by boiling pellet hops for two min. and loose hops for 5 min.

Dry-hopping seems to contribute mostly to palate flavor.

The best way to achieve maximum hop nose would be to utilize a "hop cage". Run hot wort through these hops on the way to a counterflow chiller. This would be "distillation" of the volatile hop compounds.

Chilled with immersion chiller.

I have also discovered that filtering tends to *improve* the hop flavor and hop nose of a beer. The beer flavors are cleaned up thus allowing the hop goodness to shine through.
