Citra® Hops Leaf 1 lb.
Typical alpha: 10-12%. High alpha and strong tropical fruit aromas and flavors (think mango, papaya, and pineapple).
An American hop with parentage from Hallertau Mittelfruh, East Kent Goldings, and others. Best known as a dry hop in Sierra Nevada Torpedo IPA.
They did not meet expectations as they were yellow and brown, not very fragrant and the brew I made with them was boring, lacked flavor. I'm going to blend with Centennial and hope the mix is balanced and flavored.
The color of the hops was yellowish. But the flavor was very citrusy and potent. I've been using pellets but the whole hops seems to add an a richer flavor to my ale.
