Citra Hops and Midwest
Brewed an IPA with 10oz of Citra. Still 3 weeks away from the first sample. Midwest Supplies are my go to place for most of my all grain brewing supplies.

Goes well in IPAs
I like the Grapefryit/citusy taste of some IPAs and this hop is great for both grapefruity flavor and aroma. I both dry hop and add it at knockout.

Great citrus character
These hops are everything you heard about them. They have a very distinct citrus smell and seem like the stronger cascade cousin. They will bitter your beer real well and one almost has to be cautious bittering with them for their strong acid content. One thing I have against this product is the packaging. The no vacuum seal makes these prone to spoiling if not refrigerated. I guess, brew as soon as you get them or get them cooled.

Citrusy
Citra hops have a great flavor and smell, being ideal for dry hopping and last additions. I'm willing to pay the extra dollar for such a good tasting and smelling hop.

nice citrusy pineapple flavor
Fresh Citra has a great aroma and flavor. But if they get stale they are unpleasant. I like using them in IPAs and pale ales like a clone I made of Sierra Nevadas torpedo IPA.

Love these
I bought these just to try in a wheat beer I was making. Turned out great. I have since used them in an English bitter also.

A good Citra IPA
Three Floyds Zombie Dust has them, and since it is so hard to get (even in Indiana where the Brewery is) I have to make a clone!

Best dry hop
As 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!!

Awesome....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.

Tropical fruit aroma/taste
I 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.
