I just got a # of Saphir from them but haven't tried them yet. Here's what I have on hand (all from HD):

Saphir pellet
Styrian Golding pellet
Hersbrucker GR whole
Magnum GR whole
Willamette whole
Sorachi Ace whole

I read somewhere that Saphir can have a Tangerine note. Not a lot of info on Saphir and Sorachi Ace.

EDIT: forgot Centennial...which I really like so far.

Just put my order through, went with Saaz. I do look forward to hearing your thoughts on Saphir and Sorachi Ace. They both look interesting.

I also just put in an order this past weekend and got a pound each of Centennial, Cascade, Willamette, and EKG. I'm purely a PA and IPA brewer/drinker. I was tempted to get some Saaz as well, but figured it didn't really fit in with my style.
