you only have 2.5oz of hops in the flavor/aroma part of the boil. Try combining your 45 and 60 minute additions and then take an oz off the 30 minute and spread it out over 15-0.

Citra in for cascade wouldn't be bad. Citra can be sickeningly sweet in large doses so be careful. you have a lot going on here so it may not be an issue. I've never used Zythos.

at this point the only thing to be concerned about is whether or not it's overly bitter. strong hop flavor is good. leave it condition for two weeks post carbonation.

I've tried this one as a dry hop addition to get an idea of what it will do and I'm a bit stumped. It seems to be a bit of everything. Maybe not so much on the dank/earthy/funky side but it's...
