I'm actually about to kick the keg of this Maharaja clone it's going to be a sad day.

Good luck getting the Simcoe.

I've found some hard to find hops at Austin homebrew and northern brewer. I actually just bought Simcoe from Austin homebrew. Most simcoe has been bought by the micro/craft breweries so there won't be a ton more til harvest time. Good luck.
