Highly recommend Crossmyloof. I’ve recently ordered 450g Mosaic, 450g cascade, 450g citra, 225g Simcoe, 225g Galaxy (so over 2kg) for about £85 delivered using the 10% discount code.
If I was buying other ingredients as well I’d use Geterbrewed but for a hop specific order I always try and use them 🍺

I'd never heard of them before, but they sell hops from a number of harvests and they're still flogging off Citra leaf from 2017. Prices shown are for 5 Kg of the oldest harvest.
Simply Hops are the UK division of Barth-Haas, the biggest hop merchant in the world. As such they're more geared to wholesale business and the stuff on their website is just what's left over after fulfilling their contracts which is why they have a choice of multiple years for some varieties, but I'm sure they would happily sell you 5kg if you asked them - don't expect them to break it down into smaller units though.

5K is far too much for me. it's interesting that, with Citra, while they've got the 2017, 2018 and 2019 available at steadily increasing prices, they've "sold out" of the 2020 harvest. In the light of what you say, they're probably still available to the bigger customers and they could well appear in 5Kg lots when the 2021 harvest comes on stream. Shame, I'd love to get hold of a kilo of leaf at a decent price.

At the start of the first lockdown, Brookhouse started selling 1kg packs of hops on eBay really cheap. Between £11 and £30 ish depending on variety with free delivery. They stopped doing this shortly after but I emailed them directly and they sent me back a price list with all the 1kg stock they had left so I filled my boots. This was just before Christmas but it might be worth pinging them an email to see if there’s any left.

£38.75 a kilo isn't too bad.
That's the best price I have seen and is just a tad bit more than at yakima valley although they do come in 16oz bags. Nice to see they have 2020 at geterbrewed.

Has anyone brewed with the 2020 crop yet and notice any differences?

i've only ever bought from CML. haven't felt the need to go anywhere else. they are in the same city as me right enough so delivery is always rapid but i have no issues with their prices or selection either.

I'm busy putting together an order for a few brews...
So far I've got 11 types of hops,some in more quantity than others. Currently prices are £84 from MM,£72 from CML with discount...with my grain plus other stuff it's a bit eye watering...

I've just taken delivery of 5kg of 2020 Citra T90 and 5kg 2020 Nelson Sauvin T90. I am not sure I'll be keeping all of both, I'll post here if not and let you lot have some.
I'll be keeping an eye on this. Two of my favourites.
