    I bought 4 of these for our beer club, selections were:

    Number 1: Sorachi Ace, Brewers Gold, Progress, Marynka, Pilgrim

    Number 2: Dr Rudi, First Gold, Belma, Flyer, Premiant

    Number 3: Premiant, Flyer, Dr Rudi, First Gold, Belma

    Number 4: Brewers Gold, Progress, Motueka, Pilgrim, Sorachi Ace

    All appear to be 2016 too. From what I've read, no worries about a year or two... YMMV.

    Great Deal. I bought a couple of these a few months back for the homebrew club and ran a Hop Lucky Dip comp were members could brew anything they wanted using only the hop they got. Made for a fun little competition and got people brewing out of their comfort zone of American hopped pale ales. The winner was a Belgian Blond brewed with Summer hops. No reported issues with freshness from these.

    Great idea! Did you find them fresh enough?

    Yeah, all fine. No complaints anyway from those that did the comp.

    Only tried a few varieties so far so this looks like a great way to try a few new ones that I might not have bought.

    Definitely buying a couple when I get home tonight

    If my goal was to try new hops it exceeded expectations, not even heard of some of these:

    Brewers Gold x 2
    Premiant x 2
    Cardinal
    Marynka
    Summit
    Atlas
    Triskel
    Aramis

    Time to start researching and come up with some tester recipes! :cheers7:

    Edit: All 2016 too
