Wow.  You have no fear of buying new stuff in bulk, huh?   :D       Never heard of any of them.

Idaho Gem used to be called Cleopatra. Someone posted this on the American Homebrewers forum that was from Ted at Hop Heaven. I have a pound and plan to give this a try.

"The alpha is 11%, found on a farm about 5 years ago, I have brewed it a few times, started as G1, they changed the name this year.  First year it was mechanically harvest and dried, up to now it was hand picked.  I do a single hop, 1.055 base malt and touch Vienna, first hop addition at whirlpool 1 oz per gallon sitting 15 minutes than start to chill.  Dry hop with .6 oz gallon.  With this recipe you can make 15 -20 gallons, cool in 4 different pots all with unique hops.  Cleopatra won each tasting of 4 beers (twice) as the most inviting and drinkable.  Beating Mosiac and Equinox, Mand B and some others.  I see this as a great session hop, not going to get in your way of the 5th pint."
