Just noticed Core Brewing Concepts seem to have Citra & Amarillo hops on their website, also they are doing free shipping. (always nice)
They don't say what season.. though they have just come in.
It's funny how we run out of the hops, then out of the wood work every month there is a magic supply.Just got this email from Nikobrew..
Good evening fellow homebrewer,
Remember Citra? That incredibly delicious hop that has all but disappeared? We will be offering a limited supply (2012 crop) Saturday 12/22 at 9am MST, set your alarm!
We'll also have some more Amarillo from the 2010 crop. They were stored at -5f in nitrogen flushed mylar until today when we repackaged it into single pounds. Just like with the Citra, a limited amount will be offered.
Not only that but we'll have a few other varieties on sale as well!!
Pricing (all pellets):
Limited hops (available 12/22 at 9am MST until they're gone):
2012 Citra - $27/lb
2010 Amarillo - $25/lb
Other hops on sale (12/22 at 9am MST until 12/24 at 9am MST):
2011 Centennial - Was $27.50/lb will be $24
2011 Hallertauer - Was $20/lb will be $15
2011 Warrior - Was $23/lb will be $17.25
Standard Nikobrew $5 Flat Rate Shipping applies on all domestic orders (yes Alaska, Hawaii, APO/FPO this means you too!). International shipping is $18 USD for 4 full pounds or 3 1/2 pounds of mixed increments and international customers must use PayPal as their payment method.
There's plenty of other yummy hops to brew with. Just ignore the retailers trying to flog off "limited supply" hops for ridiculous prices. :beerbang:
Stop talking about Cascade... we don't want it to sell out and become a rip off

I prefer NZ Cascade over the USA stuff (more zing), and don't like Centenial - but I think Hops Direct 2009 Centenial was not actually hops, but pelletised lawn clippings.One of the C hops is on shortage and I have quite enjoyed making a few decent brews using Centennial. I hope it takes a while for this shortage to show.
US cascade is nice but I like our Cascade all the same.
Not experienced enough in other hops to care either way yet but I also quite like Simcoe in commercials I buy.
Haven't tried NZ Cascade but I prefer the US stuff to Aus Cascade. Will have to check the NZ stuff out. Ended up with a large amount of US Cascade (not a bad thing) so have mostly been using a lot of that with a few other varieties.I prefer NZ Cascade over the USA stuff (more zing)
