Amarillo is one of my favorite hops period. I like it more than Citra, but do like late additions.

It goes fast and will until they allow more people to grow them, but they'll be found throughout the year, so don't worry too much.

My LHBS still has citra pellet and whole leaf from last year.. They never ran out of anything I don't think, might have gotten low on Citra, and got it from someone other than Hop Union, but that was about it.

Haha, sorry about the 5 dollar confusion, it's just Belma that's 5. Others are going to be between 12-18 I believe. I have 3 pounds of citra already from the 2012 crop, #1leaf and #2 pellet from labelpeelers, yet I find it hard to resist buying even more. I think I'll just do amarillo and chinook

Gotta chime in... citra by itself is good but citra in combination with Amarillo is amazing!!

Hops Direct Amarillo goes on sale today, too.

I've got my first Nelson/Citra beers still in the carboys and I can't imagine anything being better than that!

Can't wait until they come in! My # of Belma leaf came in last night, so I'm thinking a combination of all three won't hurt. Pretty excited to try amarillo too now that I have read so many good things about it!

You all seem to use a lot of pellets. I've preferred leaf. I love hop bursting. Will I be able to notice any difference in flavor and aroma using pellets?

Haha join the club. I think we may need a support group. I've ordered atleast 7lbs of hops from this year's crop so far. Just ordered 1lb Centennial, Columbus, and Hallertau from Hops Direct (pellets). Told myself I gotta stop this. No more hops til the new year!

My haul so far for 2012 crop

Whole Leaf:
1.5 lbs Cascade
.5 lbs Centennial
1 lb 10oz Amarillo
12 oz Simcoe
1 lb Citra


Pellet:
10oz Magnum
8 oz Warrior
1lb Centennial
1lb Columbus
1lb Hallertau
