Citra® Hop Pellet Profile
Citra® is the current superstar of the hop world. Citra® is the most sought after hop variety because it offers an intense citrusy flavor and aroma that revolutionized IPAs. It pairs well with other varieties like Mosaic®, Galaxy®, El Dorado®, or BRU-1™ or is even strong enough to carry a beer on its own. These Citra® Hop Pellets were hand-selected with our friends from John I. Haas from the best lots and are an exceptional lot of an exceptional variety.
Citra® hops are noted for their higher Geraniol content, which is biotransformed by yeast into Citronellol a highly-sought-after aroma compound in fruit-forward IPAs.

Amaze – Anthony 8/9/20
“Bought this hop on a whim based off of the description. Just brewed an IPA with only this and Citra. The tropical flavors and aromas this gave off were amazing. Passion fruit and pineapple were super prevalent. Will definitely order more when they are back in stock.”
