These are great for aroma & flavor. I've used these to dry hop a SMaSH I've brewed twice now. I'm planning to purchase again for batch three of the SMaSH.
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.
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.
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.
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.
