I did a Citra Pale Ale a while back that turned out amazingly! Here's a link to the recipe. It took 1st place out of 19 entries in a competition, and took 2nd in another. The only bad remarks I got were for a "garlic/onion" flavor. This flavor wasn't noticeable when the beer was green, but as it aged a little bit, it became more prominent. I used Columbus for my bittering hops. I'm not sure if the garlic/onion flavor came from the citra, or from the Columbus. I love the flavor/aroma of citra, so I definitely would keep that, but I would consider a different bittering hop when I brew it again. Magnum might be a good choice, I had thought about using Chinook as well.
