Great flavoring hop
I use this in an IPA that uses Cascades for bittering and Citras for flavoring and aroma and it is outstanding.

Great aroma and taste
It 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.

Good hops
I'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.

citra a delightful hop
A 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.

great in my wheat
This 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.

It 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.

Citrus flavor and aroma
The 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.
