This stuff if great! Put some in your beer; late boil or dry hopped, and it makes your beer...hoppy.
But seriously, hops arrived fresh and did what was expected. Good quality pellets.
Love them dry hopped
Great customer service and great products!
Contrary to what some might say (and in agreement with reviewers below), these are NOT a supercharged cascade. Not only does this hop lack cascade's signature grapefruit aroma, citrus plays a supportive role in the flavor profile. It's dominated mostly by floral notes, which makes for a very pleasant beer, though not at all what I was expecting when I ordered it. Not as strong as some west coast hops, so adjust accordingly
