I'll be interested in your result Dave , I have a bit of Mt Hood myself (yet to try)

I believe there are no bad hops , just different hops

Keen to try my Green Bullet too

They're pretty close. Hallertauer Hersbrucker's tend to have a bit more delicate aroma, but I'd be surprised if you could tell the difference without a side-by-side comparison. I prefer Mt. Hoods because of the slightly higher alpha acid rating and the fact that they are waaaaay easier to grow and yield more.

Noticed that the myrcene is 55-65% which is high for this "harsher" hop oil, certainly higher than in the nobles. However others say it is similar and they like it.
