Best citrusy hops are: Cascade, Centennial, and Amarillo

Floral hops: I tend to think of Saaz & related hops like Sterling and Fuggles & related hops like Willamette & Palisade. (Fuggles are more earthy, though than its kin.)

That inspired me to whip up a Myrcene ("Citrus/Piney") vs. Humulene/Carryophellene ("Spicy/Floral") graph:
