Received one pound of 2020 Galena leaf hops from Hop Heaven, price was very reasonable.
Shipping time from ordering was acceptable. They're at the mercy
of the USPS. I've had packages shipped using the USPS that was
shipped between two centers several times before arriving.
1. Didn't think leaf hops could be packed so tight, they were double vacuum sealed
2. Smell great and have a lovely aroma
3. Chewed on one, pleasant at first, then the hop oils took over my tongue.
4. I can see why if used heavily handed, there would be a perceived metallic taste (not quite though).
5. Used sparingly for bittering, I believe they will be fine, I'll use my Mt Hood for flavor and aroma.
