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.
