I am looking for a supplier of Nelson Sauvin hops. Interested in brewing a Widmer Bros Drifter Pale clone, and I believe that these hops are what gives it its unique flavor and character, so I am not interested in looking for an alternative yet. Anyone know where I can get some of these?
In case I am unsuccessful in locating a source, anyone have a preferred alternative?

I really don't think there is anything quite like it...and yes I've been wanting a pound of them for a while now. No luck so far.

I use these all the time, but they're pretty much out for now from what I understand. I buy a bunch every time they're released, but haven't found any in a few months.
