Default Anyone else Experimenting?

Has anyone else been experimenting with Cirta hops? Im making an IPA with Cirta Hops and Cascade Hops right now and just wondering how its going to turn out? I expect it to be very citrusy which is what I was going for.

Just wondering if anyone else out there has put them into their recipies yet and how it turned out.

i had never heard of citra hops before and the owner of my LHBS gave me some to try. i made a IIPA with magnum as bittering hops, and used the citra for flavor and dryhopping. it was great. i'm not an expert beer taster or anything, but to me it was a very clean citrus/pine kind of taste. great aroma from the dryhopping. don't think you'll be disappointed.

I have a Pale Ale that I dry hopped with Cascade & Citra a few days ago. Smells great. I'll know how it tastes in a few weeks.
