I went ot the LHBS yesterday with a shopping list for a Cal Common. Started yakking with the proprietor while he was grinding the grain bill. He mentioned that they are out of Simcoe pellets and only a few bags of whole hops left.

So,... I'm mid-boil on an all-Simcoe Cal Common. The open bag is sitting next to my laptop. Man o man these things smell great!!

If there is a Simcoe bandwagon, I'm riding it like a short bus.

I too love Simcoe hops! I just understand when people say they smell like cat piss or a litter box. I've never gotten that from Simcoe and I use it A LOT!

I'd love to find Simcoe in bulk or even a rhizome or two! Just bottled my first ever simcoe + amarillo ipa, dry hopped with both as well and the smell was phenomenal!!!

mine told me it had more to do with smaller amounts of crops and the time of year being between crops and not to get too worried about it yet

of course YMMV

i picked up 3oz of whole leaf and could smell it in my car the entire ride home - was glad i didn't get pulled over
