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.
