Default Amarillo for bittering with Citra for aroma?

I'm doing a crisp summer ale with pale malt and wheat to give a bit of edge. Just 5% alcohol, low IBU and a neutral american yeast to let the flavors express themself. The recipe I'm adapting from calls for Magnum for bittering but my brewshop doesn't have this one on hand.

Would bittering with Amarillo be too citrusy and sharp considering I'm using Citra at flameout?

I would 50/50 both for the bitter and aroma additions!

Flavors from bittering additions are typically pretty subtle in my experience, and if I recall correctly I think Amarillo is a pretty clean bittering hop. Go for it! Although from my perspective it seems like a waste -- Amarillo is as rare as hen's teeth around here, while Magnum is plentiful.

All hops are pretty much the same price here in Canada, at least at tge brewshops I go. I got an ounce of Amarillo for 3.75$ and would have to use 1/2 ounce for my recipe.
