I've brewed the extract version 3 times and all grain once. The all grain was the best. It received 2nd place at my brew club last month.
The all grain was dead on with hop flavor. Color was the best out of all the batches. Extract brews were darker. Which is to be expected. I bought 4 cases of the real thing back in July and in blind comparisions most people have chosen mine over the real thing as far as which they like best.

I Love this recipe and so has everyone thats tried it. I will be brewing another batch soon and since this is so good I've sold off some of the real thing because I like mine just as good as 3Floyds version. Much cheaper too!

Drinking my brew today, man I love citra! Mango peaches, papaya, and bitterness what a great beer.

I used s-04 and think it was awesome, even nonbeer lover said "it didn't make me gag" when they drank it.

I am brewing 5g of this on Sunday. My last version had 50% Citra and 50% Amarillo. This next version will have 30% Citra, 30% Amarillo, and 30% Simcoe.
I'm pretty excited about. All my friends love this homebrew.
For the version after that, I'm going to brew the original Citra recipe, but I'm going to use US-05 and see what that does.

How did the amarillo/citra compare to the original?

Really nice!

My first clone brew was spot on: color, flavor, aroma...

The Citra/Amarillo was different: not as aromatic, the color was darker (not sure why that was), and the flavor not as strong. Overall it was really tasty. Perhaps the Amarillo is just not as bold as the Citra.

It is the best thing I brew now.

The grain bill on the first page appears to be for a 6 gallon post boil batch. I found a 5 gallon recipe at Brewmasterswarehouse: http://www.brewmasterswarehouse.com/recipe/371a3c65/

However when I plugged it into Brewpal, I got a post boil OG of 1.063 and 51 IBUs. I typically do a split boil with 7 gallons pre-boil and end up between 5 - 5.25 gallons post-boil. Does anyone have a good 5 Gallon conversion for the grain and hop bill? Thanks.

Kegged my second version of this on Tuesday... Only change was a .25 of magnum in at 60 min.

Pulled a sample tonight (2 days in..couldn't help myself) Pinnaple / mango explosion!

So good, but could use a little more bitterness. Perhaps the 3 oz of dry hops is masking some of the bitterness at this stage?

Either way.. stellar beer!

I just cracked my first one open and wow. This is delicious. Mine came out a bit hoppier as the citra I got had a pretty high AA. I used the extract recipe and the malt and color are spot on. I'm going to brew the all grain next time as I just finished my mash tun the other day. Thanks for the recipe!
