4.9 / 5.017 ReviewsPineapple - Citrus flavorI really like the flavor of these hops, and they also have a nice aroma. I used them to make a pretty good Torpedo Extra IPA clone. Next time I will dry hop with them.January 9, 2013Amazing!I dry hopped my house pale ale with 3 oz of this for 10 days. Removing the airlock filled the house with citrus and tropical smells, my girlfriend thought I had eaten a bunch of grapefruits after bottling. Crack open a bottle and the whole room smells fruity. Everyone who tried it loved it, people said it tasted like all kinds of things- mango, passionfruit, melons, grapefruit, even papaya. Now that it is gone, people beg for "the citra beer" again and again.January 29, 2013Citrus punchI have had great results with this hop. I have used this hop for flavoring and aromatics. Personaly I feel the hops is best utilized for late additions to the boil and dry hopping. All in all, the hop is worth the extra money if you enjoy citrus!February 6, 2013Best citrus-fruit flavored hop!This hop is very useful for giving your brew that sought-after citrus "american" hop flavor. With more grapefruit flavor than cascade and a high alpha acid content this type of hops is all you need for any pale ale or IPA.February 18, 2013Superior Citra BurstAdded an ounce of Citra at flame out and then dry hopped in the keg. This hops added a unique hop aroma to my pale ale. I will definitely be using it again.March 16, 2013My favorite hop!I incorporate these in my Hop Head batches to gain that citrusy nose when dry hopping. I'll never make a batch without these!March 30, 2013Tropical fruit aroma/tasteI use Citra hops in IPAs, they are one of my favorite finishing hops. They contribute a nice Citrus aroma and taste. I use 1 ounce at 15 minutes to flavor and 1 ounce at knockout for aroma.April 13, 2013Awesome....many uses!First of all i just want to say all leaf hops are awesome. These hops right here tho! THESE HOPS RIGHT HERE. are amazing. I made some tea, ive used them with my randall JR (moon man, high life, HB IPA) and its intensified the flavors i enjoyed about each of those drinks.April 18, 2013Best dry hopAs far as I'm concerned, these are the best out there for dry hopping. I use them in my "house" IPA and it always impresses._x000D_There's nothing not to like about Citra!!June 10, 2013
