Here's the story. I am in the process of refining my DIPA recipe. I have been using Cascade, and i really love it, but i want to go with something a bit different, not looking for dank or piney like Simcoe. I'm looking for a tropical, more fruity effect. I just tried a batch with Citra, but its just too grapefruity for me. Any suggestions that worked well for you, other citrus flavors? Any help would be greatly appreciated. Oh and one more thing i am also going pro this year so i want something that's not super rare or hard to get. Thanks!

In my experience, cascade is far more grapefruity than citra- citra screams MANGO to me, with tropical fruit a major flavor. I can't think of anything more tropical than citra, but if it tastes like grapefruit to you than I guess that wouldn't work.

that's funny, guess we have different palettes. And i'm basing this solely on the one Citra beer i've brewed and a Widmer Citra summer ale. Any experience with real fruit in a DIPA? There's a few peach farms around here.

Amarillo is probably THE most grapefruity hop around. If you like it (as I do), that'd be great but it's even more citrusy/grapefruit than cascades are.

I love amarillo hops and use them in several different beers, in combination with simcoe and with US C-hops. I love them in dryhopping, also.

Mosaic. Peaches and pineapple all over the place.

I'm drinking a IPA dryhopped with 50% Citra and 50% Amarillo. I love it.
