Anyone tried one of the Barth-Haas Hop Aroma Standard kits?

Anyone tried one of the Barth-Haas Hop Aroma Standard kits? Just recently saw this. Know we've worked with the off flavor compound kit before at meetings (and I'd LOVE to do this again, specially next time we wanna talk judging). Didn't know if anyone had worked with one of the hop kits!

Info
https://www.johnihaas.com/aromastandardskit/
With no existing sensory standards in place, uniform sensory descriptions have been hard to come by. That's why the Barth-Haas Group developed a uniform Sensory Language specifically for hops and hoppy beers that defines 12 aroma categories and identifies the specific aroma attributes of each.

INCLUDED IN THE KIT:
The Hop Aroma Standards Kit contains 12 individual aroma vials each representing one of the aroma categories that comprise the 12-point Barth-Haas sensory language. The Kit has been created as a tool to train brewers and the brewing industry on the unique aromas of hops. Each vial is made up of food grade compounds that was developed for smelling (orthonasal),
not for consumption.

We’ve partnered with Yakima Valley Hops for the sales and distribution of these kits
Looks like they're $39.99 over at YVH https://www.yakimavalleyhops.com/produc ... rdskit.htm
