Simcoe is easy to find. Amarillo is pretty much gone. Citra is around, but not super common and will probably be around throughout the year. That said, here's links to Simcoe and Citra 2012 (still in stock)

Citra 2012 pounds available here: http://www.graintoglasshomebrew.com/...p/10108321.htm

Simcoe 2012 pounds available here: http://www.graintoglasshomebrew.com/...p/10132321.htm

(Simcoe also available elsewhere in pounds)

The acreage for Citra was much larger than last year, Simcoe is really popular and has a lot of acreage as well, Amarillo has a very miserly patent owner who allows few plantings and most of the fields where its planted got hit with floods.

I e-mailed to confirm they are the 2012 crop.

Those are a bit more expensive, though; I personally recommend just buying them in pounds if you can since Citra's mostly used in beers that require a lot of them.

I will say the demand on everything but Amarillo has gone down significantly from the first offerings a month or so ago.
