Default Citra IPA

So I did a Simcoe/Citra IPA just to experiment (first time with both hops). I pulled a gravity sample today and WOW! If I hadn't made the beer myself, I wouldn't believe there wasn't fresh mango in there! I'm not sure yet if its a good thing or a bad thing, I'll have to see how it mellows as it ferments and conditions.

Hopping schedule was...
1.25 oz Simcoe @ 60

1 oz Citra @ 20
.25 oz Simcoe @ 20

1 oz Citra @ 7

1 oz Citra @ 0

1 oz Citra @ DH 5 days
.5 oz Simcoe @ DH 5 days

I have added Citra in 2 different recipes.Finishing up a keg right now. yes, it will need to age a bit, seems like it mellows more with age. It will have a bit of an odd flavor until it ages.

Love the Citra as a dry hop, but it will be a tropical fruit bomb until it mellows for sure.

The tropical fruit flavor of citra will settle down fairly quick in my experience. Unlike something like Pliny where you should drink it right away, this will benefit with a couple weeks of age.

I liked the tropical fruit flavors I got from my Citra IPA. I have another tweaked recipe on deck for when I get a new sack of north american 2row.
