Please select from the following option(s) to see pricing and availability.

Citra® is currently one of the most sought after hops among craft and home brewers for their intense citrus aroma and flavor. Grapefruit and lime aromas along with gooseberry, passion fruit, and lychee notes. Currently one of the top choices for late hop additions or dry hopping when you want to make that ultimate hop bomb IPA or Pale Ale. Citra® also has a fairly high alpha acid content making it a good choice for bittering IPAs, Pales, and American Ales. Supply has been limited in the industry but MoreBeer! loved this hop from day one and bought a lot of it years ago on contract.

Good value

Dry hop with it. Or add at the very end of your boil and be prepared to be blow away with citrus and grapefruit flavors. Also massive hints of lemon.

Delicious citrus and melon flavors
My first time using this hops in my favorite pale ale recipe. Rather than using the usual WLP001 Cal Ale yeast I opted for the WLP051 Cal Ale V yeast which was a dynamite combo. I got great sweet lime/grapefruit and melon flavor upfront that still finished dry with fruity hops aftertaste. The initial bouquet aroma coming off the head from a freshly poured pint is just heavenly and full of floral, fruity ambrosia. For reference here is my Citra Pale Ale recipe: 8lbs Ultralight LME, 8oz Crystal 20, 8oz Crystal 40, 8oz Victory Malt, 8oz Munich Malt. 1oz Magnum @ 60, 2oz Citra @ 5, 1oz Citra @ 1, 1oz Citra - Dry hop.

I don't brew a lot of ales
But when I do I love to use these hops to get that citrus finish I am looking for in my summer ales.

Always Good Quality from MoreBeer
I'm a casual brewer, 5 & 10 gal batches. I buy hops by the pound for the $ savings, but use by the ounce. I've stored hops purchased from MoreBeer up to a year in the fridge before finishing a package and have not yet had a package go bad, both pellet and leaf hops.

Very fresh! I bought a pound to spread over many recipes. These work great for bittering as well as aroma.
