An experiment I'm trying for an all Citra IPA. We'll see how she turns out, although the taste test after brewing was great. Complex bitterness. I used whole leaf hops.

good luck with it. i haven't read too many pleasant experiences with using it earlier in the boil. It does smell amazing though. I did an all citra IPA and eventually dumped it. I will only use it as a dry hop now.
