New cryo hops

Hi all.

Has anyone used the new cry LupuLN2 hops?
I've just got a pack of the citra from the malt miller. I'm excited to see what they are like!

Any other opinions would be interesting!

Bash them up in the pack prior to opening, they're extremely sticky. The beers I've had brewed with them have a very dank full on hoppiness, more resinous than before. Use about 1/3 the amount to convential dry hops. Good luck!!

Yeah very sticky! After adding mine as a dry-hop I noticed the inside of the packet was coated with powder. I couldn't resist getting my finger in there and giving it a taste... WOW!

Btw, any opinion on whether they are best used for dry-hop or whirlpool/flameout additions?

I got these for dry hopping, my filter gets blocked by pellets.
