  1. Rated 5 out of 5

    Fantastic citrus flavour upon first opening, brewing and after a few weeks in the bottle. Very fresh product.

    I’ve tried to brew a Four Pines Pale Ale inspired beer, and while I definitely didn’t get the grain bill right, these Citra hops are lending a really nice citrusy floral aroma – used late in the boil and dry hopped as well. Bought in October 2017 with a best before of December 2018, so these are fresh! I’ve previously made the mistake of holding on to hops for too long and then needing to use more due to degradation. These hops have been great so far!
