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.

Citra with 6,6% alpha acids?
My 2 oz bags of Citra all indicate 6,6% AA. Citra is 11 to 13% porcentage as indicated here in the details. Don't know if the label is wrong or what hops did I received.

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.

One of the best
This is one of my favorite hops for late additions and dry hopping. Fantastic aroma of citrus and grapefruit and provides pleasant bitterness

Citra
A lovely citrus floral nose. Rich fruitiness to back up this. I love to hop bust with this.

Love these hops!
They came fresh and they taste great! Not much more to say!
If you like that grapefruit/citrus taste these are the hop!
