Citra, as the name implies, has a strong citrusy profile. It has a high alpha acid content (10-12%), giving it its robust flavor, but smoothed with floral notes and great for dual use. It has such an extraordinary flavor profile--grapefruit, lime, and tropical fruits--emanating with so much smoothness that it is usually employed in single hop beers. It gives a nice hop kick, while still allowing the beer’s full flavor profile to come through. Three Floyd’s Zombie Dust (American-style ale) showcases Citra. She is also featured in the ultra-fruity Victoria Headwaters.
