I'm building, excuse me, I'm having built a new rear wheel for my mountain/comfort tandem bike. So far I've picked up a Shimano XT disc hub (36 spoke) and I'm looking at a Sun Rhyno Lite hoop. I'm open to suggestions on other hoops to check out before I buy something though.

Velocity Aeroheats were also suggested although I don't know much about them.

If you were building up a 26" 36 spoke tandem wheel, what hoop would you use?

We used the Rhyno Lite's on our tandem. Everything was rated for about 400lbs, and it saw some abuse. You and the missus will not be able to dish out enough punishment without going off-road. And they're dirt cheap.

I went ahead and ordered the Rhyno Lite hoop. The majority opinion on the interwebs is that it is a solid wheel for the price and I've seen several tandems using them.
