Hey, Has anyone brewed an IPA with Simcoe, Citra, and Amarillo? Would these three hops work well with each other? All are well respected and desired on their own, but what about all together?

I brewed a Citra, Amarillo, and Centennial IPA and, while it is fantastic, it is lacking a certain something. Maybe Simcoe would fix that....

A old post of mine:

This was a great use of Citra hops aroma!

Citra apa

28g. Simcoe 15 min.
28g. Amarillo 7 min.
85g. citra 2 min.

kegged 3-21-10 with 85g Citra

I find the citra to have a lingering bite, hopheads may like it but I'll never do a all citra beer, nope.

Being as Simcoe and Amarillo are hard to find nowadays (especially Simcoe), this will be an expensive brew. These 3 hops should complement each other nicely though.

I've done a simcoe/citra/Chinook before and it was awesome, I'm sure Amarillo would be even better!

Simcoe/amarillo is a tried and true combo. Adding Citra will add an additional depth of flavor (stone fruit in addition to the pine/citrus).

Keep the Citra as a very late addition/dry hop - don't bitter with it.

+1 hop burst or ko additions, bittering with citra gives an ode de cat urine smell.
