Big differences, so make sure you are checking the "strength" of the hops even for very similar (or the same) varieties!
yeah i was really confused when i noticed that my pellet cascades had different numbers than my whole leaf cascades. being an engineering major, i'm used to things staying the same...not varying by season...

I agree it is a good site, but: There is surprisingly nothing about the hops I used in my most recent brew, Northern Brewer. Here is the best info I got on them, I figured they seemed like a good fit for what I was making "Traditional European lager bittering hop. Bitter and very fragrant with fair stability. (Alpha Acid Content 7.5 - 9%)" mine were at %8.0
