I was wondering if anyone here has used Mt. Rainier hops? I was thinking with the licorice descriptor that they would work well in a Black IPA, but it took me forever and a day to find a shop that still had them in stock.
I then contacted YCH Hops to check about this variety's availability, and found out that the variety has been discontinued.
I'm kind of sad. I always feel alone as a lover of all things licorice, so I suppose it doesn't surprise me that a licorice-y hop like that wouldn't exactly be a top seller, but I was still looking forward to using it.
Was anyone else a fan? I don't know how much of a voice we homebrewers have in the matter, but I'd sure like to see Mt. Rainier come back...
