Good Fresh Hops
Arrived vacuum-sealed in great shape. Used during hopstand and dry hopping with great aroma.
Great for late addition and dry hopping, not ideal for bittering
Citra is probably the best smelling hop whose smell actually matches it's taste. It is all fruit and citrus as a dry hop. As a bittering hop it is okay, but you will not taste it at all. Columbus would be a much better option for bittering if you like the citrus taste. Citra also will give a bit of a sour taste as a dry hop if used with Conan yeast.
