What are your favorite hop combos or do you like to go with just one or a blend like Falconers and Zythos? I've noticed many like Amarillo and Simcoe together, I'm thinking that will be my next brew.

I like Centennial and Citra with the bulk being Centennial and late and dry hop additions being Citra.

Also, did a great pale ale with all chinook in the boil and citra as a dry hop and it's one of the best pale ales I've tasted. I wouldn't have thought that to be the case by looking at the recipe.

I have a Chinook, Amarillo, Cascade on tap now, Falconers Flight on deck and a Zythos in the carboy. So many combos, so little time. Also have some Citra hops that are getting lonely in my freezer.

Chinook/Citra produced my best IPA so far. I'm thinking of doing a Nugget/Citra IPA next. Anyone tried it?

NZ Cascade and Motueka are a brilliant pairing for an APA.

It might be boring sounding, but my favorite is colombus cascade. Nice and simple, heavy on the cascade late. If I'm feeling adventurous, I'll throw some citra in with the cascade dry hop.

I'm horrible at creating recipes, but I stumbled upon a wonderful Super Alpa and Riwaka combination that makes a real nice IPA. I'm going to explore more of the NZ hops. So far, I've not met one I don't like!
