I love this hop
Received hops that had slightly lower AA than I expected, but instead of crying about it I adjusted my recipe accordingly to use slightly more hops and made a great beer. I absolutely love the aroma and flavor of this hop; small variations in AA from year to year do not change that fact.
Lower AA content than listed.
Be prepared to alter the formula for your recipe if you buy the listed 5.9% and receive 4.5AA hops in the mail. I called to express my frustration and was told "sorry, we will give you a discount on your next order , just shoot me a email. Sent the email less than a minute after hanging up the phone and never received a response. Not happy. Had to purchase more expensive hops at my local home brew store to get the beer I was looking for.
