Description

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.

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.

Love this hop, not a big fan of the packaging
I love citra hops! I throw close to 9 ounces in my American pale between boil and dry hop additions.
This was my first time ordering hops from morebeer. I have to say the packaging left something to be desired. Neither of the two 8oz packages I received were vacuum sealed. In addition: both packages contained a large amount of crushed hop pellets. The hops still smelled great and, I'm waiting on a beer fermenting with these in my primary. I would estimate that 20-30% of each package was mostly hop dust. I love morebeer but, was a bit disappointed with these hops (primarily the packaging/handling).

Worth the extra $$ for American style IPA brews
Very fruity finish. Citrus/grapefruit/mango type flavor. Very aromatic.
