Made a fairly hoppy pale ale that fell short of an IPA by perhaps 10 IBUs. Generous amount of cascade hops got a nice citrusy flavor, huge hit with everyone who tried it.

LOVE2BREW is in NJ and has all of these I believe.

Also could try, they sell in bulk and prices seem good.

I tend to buy magnum (or another clean bittering hop variety), and some C-hops but this year my crop of centennial, chinook and cascade as phenomenal so I didn't buy any.

I have about 12 pounds of hops (maybe more) in my freezer right now, since the hopsdirect order came yesterday.

I still buy a few others like northern brewer and willamette, after the hops frenzy dies down a bit.
Noooo! I brew almost exclusively with Citra!
Working sucks. Not having money sucks more.

How did you get 2 lbs? Split order?

To stay on topic I really love Simcoe. I think it has made an appearance in almost every brew I've done in one way or another.

Don't know about Yooper, but I pre-ordered two pounds through Farmhouse and another two through Labelpeelers. Farmhouse already delivered, Labelpeelers says they'll be shipping within the next 10 days +/-. Can never have too much Amarillo on hand - even if only for barter.

Surprisingly it's been easier to score random pounds of Citra than Amarillo. I have plenty on hand - good thing as it's a favorite here...

Just joined the forum but been brewing a while and I seem to be mad on just 3 whether brewing or drinking!

Chinook, Citra, Cascade

I've even gone a bit extravagant and have plans for a couple of super hoppy late-boil-hop only brews just to see how much of their flavour I can get

I always keep a few pounds of cascade, centennial, amarillo, citra and simcoe around and then fill in with warrior, horizon, columbus and chinook

I can never get enough cascade and simcoe. Just a simple man with simple needs.
