Since its release in 2008, Citra has been one of the most recognized and used flavor and aroma hops by craft brewers and homebrewers alike. Notable commercial examples are endless but Psuedo Sue from Toppling Goliath and Zombie Dust from Three Floyds are notorious for using Citra as the sole hop.

The high Myrcene content provides a strong aromatic profile of citrus and tropical fruit.

The best citrus hop!

Citra hops are top sellers for a reason! They have great depth and complexity and can be used in a variety of ways. My favorite is in an American Wheat. Equal parts wheat and 2-row plus 10% caramel 40. Clean fermenting yeast - I use Kolsch. I use .33 oz Magnum for bittering and then 1 oz citra for a hop stand after flameout. It's the perfect combo of fruity smell and grapefruit taste that fades perfectly!

Excellent and consistent

This has been my go to hops for my final hops addition for the last year now, Bright punchy flavor that uplifts the ale every time. You don't need large quantities either. It has a very strong, long lasting flavor when used at the end of the boil. Highly recommended.
