Great aroma hops
Used a bunch to backload an American pale ale. Wanted citrus aroma and flavors. In the fermenter now, awaiting final results.

Love this hop
I have been brewing since the 1990s, brewed with almost every hop out there. Citra is my favourite by far. I specialize in 3-3.5% alcohol ales and Citra works great here. I dry hop for 24 hours using the pellet form, using Co2 bursts to get as much surface contact exposure as possible. Then I clarify using Silafine (MoreBeer) and pour my first pint in under 48 hrs after dry hopping. Sure the flavour is intense, but it is what I was wanting. 60 grams per 60 liters. Over the next week it balances out each day, the longer the aging the more refined the flavour, but we love experiencing the flavour change each day. Well worth the extra cost in my opinion.
And you can always count on MoreBeer to deliver, I love this company, great people.
I wasn't paid for the review, I just really like MoreBeer

Nice Hops and Packaging
I like the hops carried by MoreBeer. They make great beer. I like the heavier resealable hop packages better than some other suppliers use.

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.
