I have heard tha dark crystal malts and strong American C hops do not often mix together well.

T-Can and Bearcat Midnight Wheaton Beatdown (northern brewer kit) is a really good wheat porter using Summit, Centennial and Cascade. I will admit, the dark malts take center stage

Simcoe and Columbus are the only hops in Green Flash Westcoast IPA, one of my favorites.

Making a Cascade, Centennial, Columbus IPA tomorrow- that is another great combo.

I have not had that experience. I make an India Red Ale that has lots of dark crystal and uses Simcoe, Amarillo and Cascade. It is great.

Though I have had people make the beer with Chinook, and not like it, so maybe some of the NW "c" hops would clash with dark crystal.

Perle/Cascade/willamette did not play well together at all in a ESB I made last year. Believe it was mostly the Perle since I like the cascade and willamette mix in my other beers.

I make a blonde with Perle/willamette/Cascade that I find excellent. It's an interesting thread in that it appears the same mix of hops in different styles may or may not go well.

It is a personal preference, but the combo of citra and columbus didn't work for me.

Bravo and Amarillo wasn't repulsive, but it sure wasn't the best combo I've ever tried.

Chinook is a little harsh for my taste. I do an Arrogant Bastard clone with Columbus that I really love. Recently I went with Tasty's recipe and used Chinook in place of the Columbus. While it is still a very good beer, I prefer the Columbus version I came up with better. Chinook is very present on the finish, whereas the Columbus is more up front with a malty finish.

I really enjoy Simcoe and have not tried it with Columbus yet, but that is definitely in the plans for a future brew. I'll use the Columbus for bittering and the Simcoe at 15 minutes and in dry hop. Probably with MO and a dash of light crystal malt. Should be a great sessionable beer.

I dry hopped an IPA with Cascade and Glacier recently (1oz. each) and wasn't thrilled with the result. They flavors didn't compliment eachother, never really meshed. Maybe citrus and earthy isn't the best combo?
