Best bet is to find a friend (i mean a GOOD friend) that will do some clippings for you. No sense, anyway, as the planting season seems long gone.

Hop rhizomes can only be harvested in the Spring. Anything that would be available now has been sitting in someone's warehouse for 4-5 months.

I have some cascades that you could get clippings from, but it's late in the year to plant. not sure how to safely get them there or how you could take care of them once you got them.

It'd be futile to get rhizomes now, as they wouldn't start growing until spring anyways. Or, if they did grow, they'd get maybe a foot tall before they died off for winter.

This is the only posting I know of that still has any rhizomes at all.

Fresh Hop Rhizome Plants for Growing Hops at Home

I bought 3 in June, they sent me 5, and all grew. The best is about 8 inches tall now. I fancy that I got a bit of a head start on next year. If you were going to keep them inside under a grow light you might gain some ground. However, Mt Hood is a Hallertauer clone. Centennial is entirely unrelated, being mostly a Brewer's Gold/Fuggles/Golding cross, and Cascade is unrelated too, being a Fuggles offspring, as detailed here:

I was at the Marietta Brewing Company in June, they seem to be a bit off on their brewing quality...we tried several of their brews and most seemed soured or phenolic. I do like their scotch ale, but it is never available.
