Default Motueka Hops? Where are they?

In a couple months I'm gonna be brewing a couple beers. An IPA that I use a lot of motueka hops and I'm gonna try to make a bigger version of my IPA into a double IPA. So I need at least a pound of motueka hops. Anyone know where to find a pound at a reasonable price? I can't find anywhere that sells by the pound. Does anyone know when these hops will be back in stock everywhere?

I got mine from Farmhouse some time ago, but I see they're currently out of that variety...perhaps it's too late in the southern hemisphere season, and you might have to wait for their next harvest later this summer...

I think the hops harvest in NZ was 6 weeks ago. Should start seeing fresh pellets soon.

I've noticed the NZ hops are always the first to show up every year because of that

#1 - Marris Otter base malt
#2 - Motueka hops

But seriously, I target around 1.060 OG for my SMaSHes, and bitter to about 45 IBU's but using all late additions (usually 20, 15, 10 or 5, and flameout) a la 'hopburst' style. I tend to mash somewhat high ~156*F so I have a little body and let the grain shine a bit along with the hops. Has a nice fruity aroma, and IMHO makes a nicely balanced pale ale!

I know I usually start seeing the current year's NZ hops sometime in the summer...

Freshops is a great hop source, but FWIW, they only sell US grown whole hops...

Label peelers has them for 23 bucks a pound.
