1 year agoLove this hop!Great citrus flavor, leaves an odd grassy note when dry hopping. Looking forward to using it again. LOVE THE PACKAGING, holds the quality well.January 7, 2017Purchased
over 2 years agoGreat!Very excited to order more hops with Midwest!February 1, 2016Grapefruit hopsI love Citra and to get the best flavor dd 2-3 ounces at 15 minutes, and dry hop with an ounce. You'll get a grapefruity delicious beerMarch 24, 2014Great hopI used it in an all citra pale ale and it turned out amazing. Use sparingly in dry hop, but otherwise it is a great aroma/flavor hop that is pretty versatile in American ipasFebruary 27, 2014GreatGot these instead of the leaf option for strictly dry hopping and they did a great job. If you enjoy cascade hops you will really like these as well.February 21, 2014Awesome aroma hopThese were great in my pale ale. I added these in the last 10 minutes of the boil, and I also dry-hopped with them for 6 days(after 2 weeks of fermentation). These added such an incredible aroma to this ale, I wanted to drink it straight from the fermenter! Wonderful citrus and tropical notes. If you're making a pale ale or IPA, you can't go wrong with this hop!January 26, 2014Great for dry hoppingThis hops has a smooth bitterness and strong citrus aroma Citra has high alpha acids, so a little goes along way. Dry hopping with .25oz in a 5 gallon batch has a dramatic aromatic impact.January 25, 2014Grapefruity taste and smellCitra has become one of my favorite hops. I like the smell and the taste of them._x000D_I add some after flameout and let them sit for half an hour. Then later on I dry hop with them for a couple of days.January 10, 2014CitraWhat a fantastic hop! I love Citra's hop profile. Nice citrus aroma/taste. I love using it in American wheat beers and in IPAs. The downfall is the price. at almost 3 bucks an OZ. Its a lot, but i think it's worth it.January 4, 2014
