Default Need dry hop to go with citra and amarillo

Hi. I brewed a double ipa 10 gallon Batch that had 1 pound of an amatillo citra mix. Lots of whirlpool hops. I did a 1 gallon fast ferment and the aroma is strong.......a good aroma but overwhelmingly mango Papya etc. I haven't dry hopped yet but want another hop aroma to compliment the beer. Any suggestions. Thanks

For what it is worth:
I frequently brew a citra-heavy house IPA. I have migrated to dry hopping it with a mixture of Chinook and citra (occasionally some others will join the two, like simcoe or galaxy) but I have found the resinous "dank" of the chinook to be a pleasant foil to the fruitiness of the other hops, which allows you to really go over-the-top with fruit/citrus flavors and not have it come across as... too froo-froo.

If I might suggest, choose your dry hop weight and then make it roughly 33% each of chinook, citra, and amarillo (those other two being the flavors already prominent in the beer) and see how you like it. I bet you will.

Cheers.

Hop Breeding Company, LLC that was released in 2012. It

several styles of beer. Mosaic™ is the daughter of Simcoe®
(YCR 14) and a Nugget derived male.

Chinook. I made an APA that used equal amounts of Citra, Amarillo and Chinook throughout, including dry hops. Came out lovely.
