Btw when buying whole hops do they usually add a good amount more like they do with the pellets?

since $5 is almost certainly a promo price, you can expect to pay more for a 4oz package from a LHBS. if you don't like it and were ordering something else from them, you're out almost nothing.

Horrible name for a hop IMO. Went to order a pound but with $10.75 S&H for the one pound I passed it up. Interested to see what everyone thinks of it.

What the guy after you said, the shipping makes it mediocre priced.

So I just got my order and it smells really good. Strong tangerine smell with a hint of tropical citrus. Definitely a hop I am excited about using. As for the shipping, I felt that paying 17 bucks for 6 lbs to be no big deal when compared to the per oz cost I am used to paying. If you were just buying one pound then it would be cost prohibitive but not when stocking up for the year.

How much do your LHBS charge an ounce for hops? Cheapest I can get stuff is 1.50 and ounce, or 24 bucks a pound. I know another store that charges 2 bucks and some varieties are 2.50. Anyway.

kaconga, did you get a shipment notice, or did they just show up? when did you order?

Hops are 2.25 per oz at my local shop with my club membership discount.

I ordered on friday night late and they did not send me a shipment notice. I logged on last night at hopsdirect.com and they had a tracking number there. I live just 4 hours from the farm so I am sure that is why they came so fast. The order wasn't shown as fulfilled until Monday. Overall I am really impressed.

Sounds like it might be good in a Belgian style ipa. Something like Strubbes IPA, not sure what hops strubbes uses but this might make the citrus flavor pop a bit more without making it too bitter like citra would in that beer

I know, right? Sounds like that dumpy girl from high school with lots of acne. Belma... What were they thinking. They should have given it a cool name. Like Zephyr. Or Withershins. Yeah, Withershins hops - just the thing for your next atypical IPA.

IIRC it was a mashing up of some words in a song. Still a strange name but I guess no worse than simcoe or fuggles.
