Title: Citra Hops
Post by: Jake on December 04, 2011, 12:36:28 AM
Anyone ever used these?

I just kegged my citra pale ale and it was amazing. It had just an oz in the entire 5 gallon batch because of the high AA%, but damn was it ever good. I could see this being a great hop to use in the summer months ... had a couple oz and I needed to give it a try. I was getting strong hints of citrus and passion fruit. It smelled alot like oranges and mango and my gf thought it tasted awesome, it was uncarbed. It was like nothing I've ever seen. I'll bring some to the next meeting we host.

Would love to try a couple of ounces for a pale-ale; I feel it's the best style to showcase a single-hop.

I've used them a few times and really enjoy them. The most recent time was an IPA, probably one of my favourite IPA's I've ever made -
