Citra Hop Pellets
This is the 2nd time that I have used Citra hops in my IPA. Added 1 oz of Citra & 1 oz of Cascade at flame out of the boil. Also added 1 oz of Citra pellets to the secondary fermenter. The Citra pellets really produce the grapefruit flavor & aroma that I like in my IPA. Excellent hop for IPAs!

Delicious Citrus Flavor
I brewed an IPA with these and Amarillo hops and loved the result. Strong grapefruit flavor!

Juicy and aromatic goodness
Turned out spectacular in an all citra imperial IPA. I wish I would have dry hoped with all pellets instead of an additional oz of leaf.

Amazing hop, great price
Love to dry hop with this. The quality seems very high as the aroma really comes through.

Great Citrus Flavor and Aroma
I used these in the Zombie Dirt kit and the aroma and taste are amazing. I love grapefruit which is good because the beer tastes like I put an entire grapefruit rind in my drink. If you don't like strong citrus flavors/aroma, then this is NOT for you. Otherwise, used in moderation and at the right times in your boil, these awesome hops will get great results.

nice contrast
I like a blend of tastes and flavors. This was a nice contrast with the smoked cherry malt that I was using, to make bread, actually.

How can you keep them fresh if you don't use the whole 8oz pack?
M L on Feb 25, 2016
BEST ANSWER: Vacuum pack them and then freeze. Or you can place them in a zip lock bag, fill the bag with inert gas from a can of Wine Preserver or co2 to purge as much air as possible without creating a ballon. If using zip lock bags I'd at least double the bag and store in a cool dark cabinet. Freezing might be a bad idea if not vacuum packed.
Storing hops. Do you need to refrigerate them or freeze them if you don't plan to use them for a few weeks?
A shopper on Apr 22, 2017
BEST ANSWER: Refrigeration is okay for a week or two but freezing is more appropriate for long term storage. I store all hops in a chest freezer @ 0 deg F right up to 10 min before any hop additions are made.
Is the 8oz package one bag with 8oz of hops in it, or 8 1oz packages?
A L on Dec 11, 2015
BEST ANSWER: It would be 1 package which contains 8 ounces total, in one bag. Otherwise, if you buy the 1` oz packages you can order as many as you want at the single ounce price. I hope this helps! Cheers! James J.
What crop year are these from?
A shopper on Feb 14, 2017
BEST ANSWER: As of 2/21/2017 they would be from the 2016 crop year.
