Default Dry hopped my DIPA with citra ugh

I just kegged my ultrabadass DIPA after 10 days in dryhop with 2 oz of citra (6 gal batch). Man it tastes like a dead hookers a$$. It tasted sublime during my last hydro sample and thought I was gonna jiz my pants. Now it's got an odd flavor I can't place but is not favorable. I had a similar taste with a 60 Minute IPA clone last year but I used Simcoe and Amarillo that time.

I was just about to submit this beer for competition, now I'm not so sure. Anyone else had a similar experience with dryhopping funking things up?

A SNPA with Cascade was awful after 2 days of dry hopping. Pulled them out and after about a month it finally mellowed out to be drinkable. Sometimes it just plain fails.

Yeah, 2oz of Citra may be a bit much. Citra is great for flavor, but I prefer other varieties for dry-hopping.

SAMC is right, though. It will mellow.

I made a IIPA that had (combo of chinook, amarillo, centennial, nugget, crystal (17oz total brew+dry)) an extreme, but delicious, grapefruit taste before dryhopping. After dryhopping with 1oz Simcoe, 1.5oz Citra, 1oz Columbus, 1oz Chinook, at bottling it tasted slightly herbal, slightly citrusy. After 1 week in bottle it tasted like extreme Garlic & Herb. After 3+ weeks in bottle it is damn delcious, citrusy, herbal, floral, piney.

I would just give it a few weeks. Hop flavors/aromas change quite a bit during the initial conditioning.

And by all means, put it in the competition. At best it will be back to awesome by then, at worst (hopefully) the judges can help pinpoint the off flavors.

I did an American Ale dry hopped with 1 oz. of citra and it was really aromatic, very nice. Anything more might be overkill since it has such high Alphas.

Well thanks for all the opinions. I bottled a few for the competition and also pulled a pint off it this morning. It is slightly less than a dead hookers ass today so I'm hopeful.
