Received in 2 days, foil vacuum sealed 1 pound 2020 Mt Hood leaf hops, 4.7AA.
Immediately put in refrigerator.  Tomorrow will split into one ounce
measurements, vacuum seal, then return to refrigerator.
Can't wait to use them, never used Mt Hood before.

They make a great sub for Hallertau or noble hops in general I've found

The hops have a nice aroma, chewed on one, and it was good.
Changed plan, split into 1.5 oz's, vacuum sealed, then into freezer.
Everything I've read says freezer is best.  If anything like food,
fresh is always better than frozen.

Thanks

Freezer is definitely best.

Whole cone hops are avail now. Pellets take a bit longer.

Here’s one vendor: https://hopsdirect.com/

So far it might be my favorite based on smell and taste.
When I chewed on a hop I was pleasantly surprised by the lemon note.

Drinking up batches with Simcoe and Amarillo, together and by themselves,
don't like either one of them.  Have yet to taste Magnum-pellet, and Nugget-pellet.
They're in my pipeline and not yet tasted.

I remember working at my LHBS and fresh Mt. Hood smelled so much more pungent and delicious than it's continental counterparts.

Just had a bottled seasoned brew using German Magnum-pellet.
I really like it ! IBU (32) was a tad too high for a session beer, I'll fix that next time  :)
Also, first taste of a batch with nugget-pellet, nugget=NO
