I love Citra hops, period !! When I opened the 1 lb sealed package, the aroma that rose from the package was nice and strong. When I put the hops in the boil kettle for the late hop additions, the aroma was ridiculous. The only thing that I though was questionable was the texture of the pellets. They were not like other hops I used. They were really soft and fell apart very easy. Even though the package was vacuumed sealed, I hope the hops were not spoiled when they were sent. I'll find out in a couple of weeks when I tap my keg.
Excellent in SmaSh
Farmhouse is my go to for FRESH ingredients. They deliver fast and and very reliable. I just brewed a 10 gallon IPA batch for the summer and it turned out fantastic! I brewed this variety with a single malt (Briess 2 row) and couldn't be more pleased. Tones of mango, papaya, citrus and grapefruit. Hint, get the bulk of your IBU's in the 10 minute or less range. The flavor really comes through!
my go to hop
Always enjoy what Citra brings to my recpies
tired of paying to much at the local brew store
Was really pleased with the quick delivery and the prices.I'm kegging my citra double IPA this weekend so I'll do a follow up on the quality of the hops
Ordered on Tuesday, received on Wednesday!
So I order this, and select "Small Flat Rate Insured (2-3 Days INSURED) $7.60" on a Tuesday, with the hopes of brewing a Zombie Dust clone this coming weekend. These crazy people ship it that day, "Priority Mail 1-Day". And here I was worried I wouldn't get the hops in time. Thank you, Farmhouse Brewing Supply.
Bit different, still great
Similar nose to previous crops, but with an orange citrus taste that I've never had before. Still makes an amazing pale ale
Its Citra so of course its good!
I use Citra frequently in many IPAs and Pales and love it. Farmhouse has fast shipping and reasonable prices. In addition, they appear to have better stock than other online retailers. Solid.
Citra is awesome
Made a batch of IIPA with 10 ounces if citra and my friends loved it. They said it tasted like a mix of orange and grapefruit juice. AMAZING!!! The price for the 1 lb bag is incredible.
but it arrived with vacuum seal broken, little disappointed. Resealed quick as possible, I'm thinking they will be ok
