I have been using the falconers flight in place of amarillo for the past year and have had excellent results. Swapped it on a couple of IPA's and an APA and neither of them missed the amarillo one bit.

I won't go as far as you, and say that I don't miss Amarillo. I'll admit, I've never been short on amarillo, it's plentiful in my parts, and I bulk bought this year as well.

However, in terms of the blends, FF3C's was a great, great combonation of hops. I have a few remaining pints on tap still from a big IPA I did with them, and loved it. Thought it had everything you'd want in a bold hop profile for an IPA or Pale. If I was out of the big name hops- FF7C's would be on my list to use alone.

I'm impatiently waiting for the FedEx guy buy brewing a pre-Citramas batch. I hope I don't freak out too much and try and kiss him or something.

Good to know that they are generous with the amounts like they normally are.

The bags are actually quite heavy but they are always over a pound of hops in each order. My best leaf weight, was 19.6 ounces of citra out of the bag earlier in the harvest.

My pound of Amarillo and Citra came. 18oz and 18.5oz. They both smell incredible, especially the Citra. Nice soft pellets too.

Hops direct nitrogen flushed bags definitely smell funky though. Don't judge the hops by sticking your head in the bag. Take some out, give them a minute to air out, give them a good rub, and then smell.

No, it is not. Genetic modification involves the implanting of genetic material from one species into another when these species have absolutely nothing in common and couldn't possibly be crossed naturally. Selective breeding is just that.

"...a product is regulated as genetically modified if it carries some trait not previously found in the species whether it was generated using traditional breeding methods (e.g selective breeding, cell fusion, mutation breeding) or genetic engineering."

Straight from the FDA dude
