Citra (US) Whole Hops


Citra (US) Whole Hops

This hop is a high impact aroma hop that will impart a strong citrusy profile, including grapefruit, lime and tropical fruit. Using it as a bittering hop can lead to a harsh and undesirable character, so caution is advised when using it as more than an aroma hop.

It's a great choice in the following Beer Styles: IPA, American Ales, Ambers

Alpha Acid %: 10-15%

Beta Acid %: 3-4.5%

 A good substitute for this hop would be Simcoe, Cascade (US), Centennial, or Mosaic.
