I dry hopped with 4oz Citra pellets on Thursday. That carboy smells splendid now. Gonna cold crash it Thursday, keg it Saturday, get drunk from it on Monday for Monday night football.

Just to update here. The pee-pee smell is gone, and the beer is ... OK.
It is super bitter (of course), but lacks the aroma and flavor that all of my Citra additions, inc dryhop, should have put on.

Meh.

Citra, depending on when they harvest can smell like cat piss. Simcoe as well. I enjoy it myself, oddly enough.

I've heard that of Simcoe. Didn't research Citra enough, I suppose.
Know what, though? It's beer. And I'm happy for that!

Good to know that it will more then likely fade and or go away completely. I think I must have got a batch of cat piss citra too. I just bottled the below a week ago and the smell makes me want to never use citra hops again.. I just don't understand it. I guess I'll crack another bottle open in a month or so and see how it is doing.
