if you used this hop, and added mangos to secondary, would it be overkill? I want to do a mango IPA, and have been hearing about how tropical-ly this hop is

I just got 3oz of pellets at my LHBS for $5.25. I think a SMaSH is in order!

I got them from, got them in last week, and vacuum packed them in appropriate amounts. I got a head ache doing that of the pungent smell. I dry hopped 5 gallons with a little bit while I was at it and tasted that yesterday. Oh my, that hop is truly amazing. It has a great smell and taste to it. Definitely on the top of my list of great IPA hops.

I used some in my basic Single Hop Pale Ale recipe and the taste going into secondary was great. I didn't add any bittering hops, just .5oz FWH, .5oz @15min, and 1oz @ 5min. Now it's dryhopping with another 2oz for a week, then cold crash and into the keg. I also made an identical batch using Chinook on the same day. They are both very smooth with good flavor and aroma, but the Citra smells amazing.

I brewed an APA with alot of late hop additions and I got alot of pineapple and peach. the flavor and aroma was so intense that it could almost pass for a fruit beer on its own

Are these dual purpose hops or should they be used for bittering only?
