According to the National Hop Association of England: "If you mix hops remember that sometimes hop aromas from different hops just 'average out' the taste and dilute the effect. Single hopped beers usually (not always) have more aroma definition about them than multi-hopped beers."

What are your favorite hop combinations? Are there any to be avoided? Which hops would make for good single-hop beers?
