They are about the worst hops you have there sunshine. The best thing is to send them to me for safe disposal

Dunno about the other two but cascade does well in pale beers like a SMaSH or an IPA

Loral is on my wishlist of hops to try. Check out this thread over on HBT for some ideas.

I liked the sound of pairing it with some Citra in an American IPA.

Some interesting hops there. Cascade is the classic American hop, and Azacca is tropical, so I'd use them in an all American IPA. Pekko and Loral are pretty new. Pekko apparently has a fairly unique mint flavour, so I would try and showcase it as a late addition in something that could accommodate the flavour, like a saison or American wheat. Loral I know almost nothing about, but it did feature on the Hop Chronicles, and the aroma would suit an IPA and the flavour would match well with rye, so a rye IPA could be a good fit.
Planning: Zombie Dust clone, Fisherman's stout
FVs: Munich dunkle, Czech pilsner
Conditioning: BBNo1:1 Citra saison, Chevallier bitter, Blackberry wine, Elderberry wine, Plum wine
Drinking: Cwtch, Bures Gold, Perry, Cider, Gales Festival Mild (GW clone), RIS, Winebuddy Merlot, Mead, Cyser, Melomel
Previous good'uns: RyeIPA, NEDIPA, Bitter (HBF comp 2nd place), Perry from scratch, Hobgob clone, DIYDog Dogma, Mild, BIPA x 3, ginger beer

I've just used Azacca as a dry hop in a Wilko's golden ale kit. I used a full pack of 100g in 20 litres and the initial smell was fantastic and was very tropical. At bottling it had mellowed a fair bit but was still good and seems to be more orange now. So I would think they would go well on their own or with the Cascade in an American pale or IPA.
