Has anyone had any experience with these?? I remember seeing something about them in BYO a couple months ago and my LHBS just got some in. I bought two ounces of Pacific Jade and a ten pound sack of MO for a SMaSH I'll hopefully get to brew tomorrow. Just wandering what I can expect.

I'm planning on a 5.5 gal batch, mashing ~148-150 for 60 min.
60 min boil .5 oz PJ @ 60, an ounce at 20, then another .5 at 10.
US-05
Ferment ~65f

No, I've used (and have a small stash of) organic Pacific Gem from New Zealand. With the similarity in name, makes me wonder if they are related . . .

Edit: Well, they are both from New Zealand, apparently, and both are high alpha hops. But apparently have very different characteristics.

I've made a nice pale ale with them. It was a kit from AHS but it came out so good! I grab up some of the hops and make it again if i had the chance.
