Ok, I'm looking for fruity hops both aromatic and bittering. Can anyone help me I'm looking for more of a citrusy hop, but I welcome any suggestions.

Well, I've heard that sorachi ace is very lemony but I haven't tried it.

I think amarillo is very grapefruity, and cascade is citrusy. Citra tastes like mangos to me. I'd consider all of those fruity.

To me the fruitiest hops are amarillo, citra, and centennial. Of course you can go down the list of the 'citrusy' hops, but I think these give a more generic fruitiness, if that makes sense.

Citra is very tropical fruit.

Sorachi Ace is lemony (but NOT citric... kind of a fake lemon flavor)

Amarillo, Cascade, Centennial, Simcoe all have a grapefruit thing going on

Willamette has an orange rind kind of bitterness to it

Pacific Gem has kind of dark berry flavors going on

Nelson Sauvin is a very fruity tasting and smelling hop. Has a white wine aroma that is very unique.
