The three listed are all great bikes. Of the three, I like Kona's approach and understanding that a lot of us a clydes yet love mountain biking.
I'd test ride the Hoss and if it's comfortable I'd buy it.
On a side note, frames for clydes aren't really an issue. They all hold up pretty much the same. Things to look for for clydes are heavier duty rims, bigger fatter tires, stiffer spings for the forks and seats with chromoly rails, and double bolt seatpost clamps.
