Default dry hopping w/ citra

so ive read a good amount of threads in the forum/online regarding citra hops. after everything ive read im really on the fence about using them, lots of mixed opinions. basically, i wanna know feeback of how you feel about this hop, either during the boil, late additions, but more so dry hopping. i have an ipa that im building and the dry hops were gonna be amarillo, simcoe, cascade, and columbus. i was thinking about subbing the amarillo for citra depending on the feedback i get....

Citra is bar none, my favorite American hop to dry hop with. Super floral/ fruity smell.

Drinking an APA right now I dry hopped with Citra. It's kinda got a flavor all its own. very fruity. My son grabbed a glass friday night and said, dad whats this new beer, it tastes like it has fruit in it. Columbus is a great hop also. i use it a lot

how do you think it would blend in the hops i have listed for the dry hop w/ a amarillo substitute? can you compare citra to any other hop? ive heard it can be real tropical and even kinda "catty" like simcoe.

I've got a batch in the secondary right now dry hopping with citra. This is my first batch ever though - its an IPA made using only zeus and citra hops. I'll be bottling in about a week...will let you know how it turns out.

Sorry if I am hijacking the thread,.....but wonder how well citra would dry hop in a double IPA....think you could still get some citrusy/floral hints over the strength of the high IBU's???

I wouldn't use it for bittering. It's been called simcoe on steroids when used for more than a 30min boil. I use it exclusively in a pale but don't hop till 30min. The last ipa I did had warrior, cascade, Amarillo, and citra. Awesome combo of hops.
