Developed by Hop Breeding Company and released in 2007, Citra® HBC 394 cv. features high alpha acid and total oil content with a low percentage of co-humulone. It is one of the top ten aroma varieties for craft brewers imparting distinct citrus and tropical fruit flavors.
Citra, as the name implies, has a strong citrusy profile. This is largely credited to its very high myrcene content. It has an extraordinary flavor profile of grapefruit, lime and tropical fruits but despite its high alphas, brewers often warn against its use for bittering, which is considered by some to be harsh and undesirable.
We've purchased this hop in bulk and have lovingly vacuumed sealed it for you, to retain maximum flavour and aroma, PLUS bring you the best price. All our hops are kept refrigerated before you buy them.
