When a recipe calls for Citra, you can't really swap anything else in. It's its own animal, nice tropical fruit and citrus scents, very low on the earthy and piney scents of other hop varieties. For me, it's got the best aroma notes of Cascade with a much-lower pine profile. Great for late-boil or flameout additions and dry-hopping. If you want to try a beer featuring Citra, it seems to be the main hop in "Sip of Sunshine" out of Vermont. There's a nice price-break at 8oz if you use them enough....I do.

Citra dry hop
Haven't used the Citra yet. It will dry hop my black IPA in a couple weeks. I'm expecting wonderful flavor, as usual.

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.

Great hop
Citra has been popping up in a lot of beers I drink so wanted to try it. Immediate citrus punch when opening the packet. Hop pellets were good quality. Packaging keeps things well. Pellets are a yellow-green, which could be the lupulin or just the color of the bracts so no worries.

Lots of dust
I think 1/2 oz of these hops was dust.
Disappointed with that.
They worked fine but it feels like I did not get all I paid for.
I am not a fan of the loose-pack hop packages.

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.

How can you keep them fresh if you don't use the whole 8oz pack?
Marty Esthay 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.
