    Anything? I'm just spit balling here

    Piney, resiny and earthy hops?
    Hoppy and roasty?
    Hoppy and (dare I say) caramel-y?

    The dose makes poison, so is there a certain ratio where some weird flavors work well together?

    Hoppy and caramel work very well together! To me, most of the combinations you mention work, at least within some range. I tend to think about combinations as balanced (a good Helles), biased (a good pale ale), and poisonous (Belgian IPA).
