Pretty crazy apparently they found it growing near a shed on the farm. Hopefully they will be available in pellets I would love to try them.

In my experience, it's pretty close to a lb.

Yeah, I think the days of getting overstuffed bags of hops from hopsdirect is long gone. I've been buying from them for a few years now and have never gotten more than 1/4 to 1/2 an ounce over.

I just portioned a "pound" of cascade leaf that was 18.8 oz and a "pound" of belma that was 18.4 oz. I would say its well over a lb when you consider what 2 oz of leaf hops looks like. When I got done with the belma my hands smelled like I had been juicing oranges. I will brew up a beer with it on Saturday.

That's interesting and great news, though contrary to my experiences with them. How accurate is your scale and what portions did you measure?

The reviews sound promising! Might be the new Citra.

Anyone here who doesn't finish their pound or doesn't like it that much, I'm totally willing (and would appreciate) to pay for an ounce or two + the shipping. Stoked to try this variety

I'll send you a few oz. Where are you from? Maybe you could send me a bottle of a good local brew?

1 oz portions and my scale seems fairly spot on. It measures in .05 increments. I will pick up a liter of water and see if its accurate with that.

Going to make a dry IIPA with Belma & Citra as late additions and in the dryhop... Apollo for bittering and as a middle charge. I need another late hop to round things out. Any suggestions? I want to combat some of that dominant tropicalness. Centennial, Southern Cross, Nugget?? Something else?
