What's the new obsession with Citra and where did it come from? I mean I love the hop, it plays a key role in my house IPA. But I feel like the demand for them has gone through the roof out of nowhere. I was able to get last seasons harvest until fairly recently, now this seasons harvest is like a gold rush. I don't get it.

As for LabelPeelers, they have always been good by me. I'm sure they will take care of everyone as quickly as they can.

Still showing as pre-ordered for me, but I didn't order until 10/22. Got plenty of other hops to play around with for the time being..

Just not a fan of having orders sit in limbo, more of an instant gratification kinda guy. but the wait will be worth it.

I don't know, they claim that they are so close to the supplier that they get hops in 5 days a week. Not being able to fill pre-orders when you know ahead of time how much you'll need (whole purpose of pre-order) is unacceptable. I don't mind waiting, but if it ends up I pre-ordered and they don't have the supply to fill the order then I'll never use them again. The only reason to pre-order anything is to guarantee you get what you wanted in the case that things sell out. To pre-order and still not receive the product is just terrible business.
Here's the deal. Labelpeelers had contracted 2000 lbs of each of the trademarked hops this year. The harvest was bad, and suddenly the supplier cut down the allotment to 400 lbs of each well into the preorder period. The contract had a clause about natural disaster type stuff (like a bad harvest) that left no legal recourse to get what was originally contracted.

The problem seems to be on Hopunion/LD Carlson's end, and subsequently passed on to Labelpeelers. One of the suppliers I ordered Citra from 2 days ago(Farmhouse) has shipped already. I pre-ordered from labelpeelers weeks ago and still not shipped. I don't blame labelpeelers by any means, they are just going by what they were told, but like dbrewski said....gota get more than one iron in the fire.
