Bright orange, grapefruit, lemon and other wonderfully tropical fruit flavors create an aroma that is totally unique to this popular hop. An alpha acid range from about 11% to 13% provides the perfect bittering agent in in a boil, and lets aroma shine through when dry hopped. Combining Citra® hops in whole or pellet form with other fruity varietals like Simcoe® and Mosaic® works well, while these can also be substitutions for Citra®. Test out this fruity flavor yourself in commercial brews like Citra® Single Hop Imperial IPA from Flying Dog Brewery, and see how it goes down when dry hopped in Sierra Nevada’s Torpedo IPA.
