I've been intrigued about hop combos and their biotransformations ever since I heard Stan Hieronymus speak about them.

Using nugget and chinook in the whirl pool and/or dry hop produce something much fruitier/tropical than either on their own. I've tried it and it seems to be true.

Has anyone else discovered amazing combos with cheaper hops?

There have been some studies about substituting hop combos for popular hops:

Amarillo substitute: 5 parts Cascade, 1 part Lemondrop

Citra substitute: 70% calypso, 30% bravo

Simcoe substitute: 50% Eurekea, 40% Apollo, 10% Cascade

Has anyone discovered good substitutions for popular hops with non-proprietary or cheap hops?
