4.9 / 5.047 ReviewsGreat flavoring hopI use this in an IPA that uses Cascades for bittering and Citras for flavoring and aroma and it is outstanding.July 7, 2013Great aroma and tasteIt has a fruity taste that goes well in an IPA or blonde ale. I add an ounce with 2 minutes left and leave it in while cooling. If you like the Sierra Nevada Torpedo IPA then give this a try. It works especially well when paired with other hops, working together.July 9, 2013Good hopsI've used these hops as late additions to the boil on multiple brews. They add great flavor. I've also dry hopped with these. One of my favorite hops to use. Just wish they were cheaper.July 23, 2013Great!Very excited to order more hops with Midwest!February 1, 2016citra a delightful hopA great hop with a nice citrus aroma, and a balance alpha acid level. Fantastic not only for aroma and flavoring, but a nice choice for dry hopping.August 6, 2013great in my wheatThis is a great hop. The first time I used it was to finish off a wheat beer. The citrusy flavor helped make it an excellent beer to have on a hot day. I will try this in some IPA's and Pale Ales. Worth the price.August 20, 2013One of my favoritesI usually use this hop when making an IPA. Its a great hop if you like bitter and citrus flavors.September 7, 2013CitrusyIt has a good Citrusy taste and aroma. Citra is idea of pale ales and IPAs. Either for dry hopping or adding to the boil. I've had success pairing it with Cascade hops.September 27, 2013Citrus flavor and aromaThe fruitiness of this hop will amaze you. Very tropical smelling and tasting. They were just what i was looking for and complimented my recipe superbly. Good for dry hopping, flavor hopping, or at flame out.October 17, 2013
