Wow
I didn't get this hop from Northern Brewer, so I can't comment on ordering, but I did get it for the same price at my local HBS. This hop smells incredible. I did a 4gal BIAB version of this using 6lb 2-row, 2lbs Pilsner malt and .5lbs of Amer wheat malt. I also put 1oz of Azzaca in the mash. Did a 60min boil, with 5ml of hop shot. I added 1oz of HBC438 at -5min. Used 1L starter of recently harvested Conan yeast from Heady Topper cans

Unique flavor
They have a new citrus/woody flavor that will do well in pale ales and session beers.

Made an awesome hoppy brown with these
I can't give a specific description of what these hops bring to the table, but I can tell you they play really nicely with Azzacca and Columbus. I just tapped a keg of a sort of "sweep-the-kitchen" experimental hoppy brown ale where I used an ounce of these and an ounce of Azzacca at FO, and let me say, this is one of the tastiest beers I have brewed. I recall the aroma of these hops on opening the package made me want to circle back and brew a simple pale using only these, as they seemed to have enough tropical fruity complexity to make a good SMASH, but I haven't gotten to that yet. Though I would encourage anyone contemplating just that to give it a go. I suspect you won't be disappointed.

Love it
This is a great hops. I have used it in two separate beers now, a blonde and an IPA. We used it with Azacca hops in both beers and they came out great. Obviously we used a lot more in the IPA and the beer came out with fantastic tropical notes and flavor. We dry hopped both beers and were very happy with them both. In the Blonde we used just an oz of each as late additions, and about half the IPA amount for dry hopping. The blonde had great tropical notes in the nose, but was a perfect, dry neutral flavor with a tad bit of tropical/bitterness to taste. We are entering the blonde into a competition this weekend and will post the results. Needless to say we are very confident in a strong result from it. This will be a continual use from here on out. I am going to play with it with Citra and Columbus next.

HBC 438 GLORY
I made a NEPA with it (https://www.brewtoad.com/recipes/pale-schmale-super-juice) and I couldn't be happier. Even with the mosaic and galaxy next to it, the HBC 438 shines and almost stands out. This is easily my favorite hop right now!
