I find summit to be a bit funky (garlic and onion) I tried a few late addition charges laced with Amarillo and my IPA turned out like a skunky pizza beer! I won't do that again.

I'll second that...summit and anything is not a good combo for my palate.

Any opinions on Citra/Cascade combo? Seems like it should work well to me but I'm brewing an APA in the next week or so, so I'd like to be sure.

Both citrusy, they should play together nicely. I've used them together before with great results.

I tried Mt. Hood for aroma three or four times, and decided to stop trying. Maybe I just don't like it.

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.
Rehashing this thread a little bit...mind sharing your arrogant bastard clone. It is my favorite beer and I havent had luck yet with a clone.

I can completely understand this, don't have to taste it to agree.

When I get beers like this I just put them aside and let them age out... so the hop bitterness just about goes away...

Then again I am not all that fond fo a lot of the West Coast "piney" beers...

I mean if I want to chew on a pine tree I can do it in my front yeard for free..

Its really interesting to hear what people like and dislike. One of the top IPAs out there, Green Flash, is all Simcoe/Columbus.I love it, and use those hops all the time. But a lot of people just do not like those hops. I like Mt. Hood in lots of beers-its pretty neutral and adds a little noble character. Glad we have so many hop varieties to play with!

One of my favorite IPA's I brew starts off with Chinook for bittering and then the rest is a combo of Citra and Cascade. IMO, they work VERY well together!
