Not sure if posts like this are allowed, and I am not affiliated with hopsdirect in any way except as a customer, but for cyber Monday they have a bunch of 2015 hops for 3 dollars a pound. Thought I'd share.

Thanks.  Took advantage of sale to buy some hops that I use and some that would be interesting to try.

The $3/lb. and the fact that they now offer USPS Priority Mail as a shipping option really makes for a great deal.

I got a 1 pound bag of galaxy leaf hops with this sale. So far I've brewed two beers with them and they have come out with virtually no flavor/aroma from them. Used them at 180 whirlpool and DH to no avail. Not sure what I was expecting when a hops that is normally close to 30 dollars a pound is 3 dollars. Nevertheless, I don't think it is my technique, as I have had success with my methods in the past. I cant help but think the leaf hops quality are to blame.

Did anyone else get a pound of the galaxy? If so, whats your experience?
