Do you just dump your hops in or do you use a straining bag? I have heard a lot of differing opinions on this.

I really like Citra. I don't know why people would dislike it. If you talking about too much bittering I just made a Barleywine today that used Warrior with 19.7% AA. That is huge in my opinion. It's really citrusy and resinous and that's what I like in my beer.I'm planning an IPA that uses mostly Citra with some earthy hops and I'm going to dry hop with 2oz Citra.

Some people detect a cat piss flavor when citra is used for bittering in large qtys.

One more thing, please.....can you tell me how much hops in total you used and at what boiling-times? I am beginning to realize that some people (beginners) might make the mistake of dry-hopping with a lot while neglecting a bit the aroma/flavour boiling stages. That might be my case too...and I wanna avoid it.

Thanks.

A lot of it is taste threshold/sensitivity - I detect a bit of it in Green Flash's all citra session pale ale for example. But my friend didn't. From what I've gathered it comes out more when used for bittering.

Citra seems to be a love/hate hop - search on the forum and you'll find a lot of discussions.

I use pellet hops, so I just toss them in. If you were using whole-leaf, then I would say use a bag, since it'll be much more difficult to rack.

I'll have to look this up when I get home. I'll post the whole recipe.
