Are your pelletized hops compressed, leaf hops?
These are fresh leaf hops that have been shredded, cleaned of seeds, etc, then pulverized and compressed into the pellets. This is the most common way hops are processed and sold. More hop resin is extracted and exposed this way, which creates more efficiency. Pelletized hops also stay fresher longer in this form as well.

How long will your hops stay fresh after I receive them and what is the best way to store them.
Our pelletized hops are sealed in oxygen-barrier plastic bags along with nitrogen gas. This keeps the hop pellets very stable and fresh while in storage. If the hop pellets are stored at room-temperature, we do not recommend buying more than you can use in a year`s time, but if stored in a refrigerator or similar, the hop pellets should stay fresh for up to two years if un-opened.
