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.
