Wow! So what if they are from 2007, you can add a bit extra for bittering at that price! I'd wait and see how they are when they arrive, but that looks like a good score at first glance.

Maybe someone else can answer: how much does the flavor and aroma degrade after a year on something like those cascades?

Do hops really lose their bittering potential that much? i was going to make a pale ale this weekend with 2007 cascades. should i reduce the AA im typing into my recipe generator?

If they were stored properly, vacuum or inert gas packed and in a freezer, you should see little to no reduction in AA%.

That looks like a good score OP. I payed $30 for that same pack of Galena around April.

There are some decent looking deals on E-bay right now.

$110 for 11# various hops from one seller
4oz for $10 (not a super deal, but it's Buy One get One).

Note: I didn't check shipping for either of these.

Just make sure to stay away from user sunburst66. I order 1.5 pounds the other week and still have not received the hops and cannot get him to respond to any emails

Don't lose hope yet. Some sellers I've dealt with are horrible communicators, but otherwise everything went well.

I ordered 1.5 pounds, too and did receive them. But it did take a long, long time and he was slow in responding to e-mails. (On the other hand, it wasn't much slower than my orders from MoreBeer which takes 10-12 days to get to me.) I'm also waiting for my replacement -- one of the 8oz packets sent was the wrong kind, so he's sending for free the right ones, but I haven't received them yet.

On the other hand, they are beautiful hops and a tremendous deal, $8 for 8oz + $3 shipping for fresh leaf hops.

I am holding out hope, but I had to break down and buy hops at the LHBS that were from 2007 so I could brew last night because I need to transfer it to dry hop while I am gone for Christmas and couldn't wait any longer.

When/If they come, I will be very happy. I am at 10 days and counting, so by your experience, I should get them any day now.
