Default Citra and ____?

I'm just looking for some opinions here. I'm making a pale ale and am planning on using citra as one of my hops.
My other hops are Cascade, Amarillo (2013 crop), Mosaic and El Dorado.

there is no recipe for pale ale where amarillo is not appropriate.

All you are missing is a low-cohumulone hop for bittering.

Kern River Citra DIPA uses only Citra in the boil and then dry hops with Amarillo and Citra. I know this beer has won a ton of awards so that combo might be a great way to go (FWIW I haven't had this beer, but I just listened to the Can You Brew It episode, so it stuck out).

I think all of those hops would work well with each other. Just make a crazy juicy IIPA....

I have had it and it's pretty good. But like all beers that are generously dry-hopped with Hype, it is not as good as you are expecting it to be. It has the same kind of off-putting bitterness that I have had in other beers bittered with Citra.

Ya I'm not sure there is a situation that would force me to bitter with Citra. Though, my reasons are purely financially motivated. I would use a cheaper hop to bitter with regardless.
