Haven't tried it yet, but good to know. I'm always looking for a substitute for those hops.

Thanks

I just got a pound of Zythos in today and was looking for a mostly Zythos recipe to give the hops a taste.

Did you dry hop this batch at all?

Sounds yummy... may try it this weekend!

Just dry-hopped my 100% Brett IPA with Zythos. Curious to see how it turns out!

Ritebrew.com has ounces of citra, simcoe, centennial, and Amarillo at reasonable prices.

I did an IPA with all Zythos from 20 on in including dry hop. Mine is very peach, pear, apple kinda fruity. It's not the dank hops I thought it would be. Not sure if I'm into it. I'll use them up in a wheat or Belgian I guess. Not bad just not what I thought. I'd love to know what hops and % the mix is.

I did a zythos pale a few months back and didn't get anything like citra or simcoe. Its a nice blend of hops that lends a firm bitterness and 'hoppy beer' flavor but has none of the standout characteristics of citra or simcoe. You might try falconers' flight next time instead. FF has more citra/simcoe flavors and is, when compared to zythos, a way more interesting hop blend.

I decided I get watermelon too. For me Citra is peachy and kinda not at all funky, I assume Zythos is heavy Citra.
