Wow.  Funny thing is that dry pellets alone don't often translate to what you get with the hop oils dissolved into the beer.  With all the hop varieties out there readily available, it's a (goofy) solution looking for a problem.   8)

Lot of hop pellets smell pretty much the same to me. Granted the hops were fresh out of the freezer, but I wonder if there is any real value to this.

Hmm, this one smells like fresh-cut grass *throws away*

I'm sorry, but I have zero use for this product. It doesn't even make sense to me.

Why not just hook some electrodes to the hop center of your brain and zap away?

Nah, just jam a couple of cones up your nose. Way easier and less expensive.

Yeah I thought it was pretty funny.

I can imagine carrying it around in a fanny pack with packs of pellet hops to your favorite drinking establishment. If a beer doesn't meet your needs; hop blast time!

I finally opened the link. Thats awesome! It should be followed up with some goggles that have pictures of brilliantly clear beer pasted to the inside.
