I should have thought of that at the store. Unfortunately I won't have time to get back there before my planned brew session, and if I have to wait I'll just order some Simcoe. Maybe that's what I should do, simcoe is not easy to substitute for, but with two young kids I don't get to brew enough so I hate to pass up an opportunity. If the hops I listed won't do, I do have some less likely options around as well - magnum, willamette, EKG, Saaz, Hallertauer, and Tettnang. Nothing in there looks piney to me, but maybe some combo here would still produce a great beer?
