A hopback produces aroma that is superior to dryhopping, whirlpool hops, flameout hops, etc. And as the other fellow said, it's meant to be used in-line BEFORE the chiller.
I have all the Blichmann products you've mentioned, including 4 Boilermakers. They're all fantastic products... except for the Hop Blocker, which is a total dud. And it seems I'm not alone in thinking so, I really wish had read others' opinions before buying it. In theory, the thing sounds like a genius idea, but in practice it just has a ton of issues, even WITH a Boilermaker.
