CITRA HOPS 8oz Hop Pellets – Dual Purpose Flavor and Aroma


Here’s an 8 ounce BSG factory pack of dual-purpose CITRA hop pellets from BSG Hops (Formerly Crosby and Baker).   Citra is currently the “IT” hop for the US Market, possibly the most popular modern brewing hop around. Citra® hops are highly sought after among craft and home brewers for their intense citrus aroma and flavor. Citra® boasts grapefruit and lime aromas along with gooseberry, passion fruit, and lychee notes. You simply can’t go wrong using these hops for late additions or dry hopping when you want to make that ultimate hop bomb Hazy IPA. Citra® also has a fairly high alpha acid content making it a solid choice for bittering IPAs, Pales, and American Ales.

Citra:  Citra hops impart interesting citrus (hence the name) and tropical fruit characters to beer.  A commercial release, Citra is far and away my favorite hop for blending with.  Grapefruit, orange, and gooseberry up front with a tinge of  tropical mango fruit and a roasty rye aroma in the finished brew. Acid levels vary year to year, expect 10-14% Alpha.  There is no good substitute for Citra!  Citra hops are top sellers for a reason! They have great depth and complexity and can be used in a variety of ways.

BSG HandCraft is proud to introduce new packaging for our hops in conjunction with our new hop processing facility in Yakima, Washington. Our new facility means that BSG has complete control of the entire supply chain from bale receipt and storage to shipping of finished goods.   The new packaging represents the best in technology available in terms of reducing oxygen permeability. This allows us to provide the best quality and freshest hops to the brewery and home brewing markets.
When you purchase a factory packed variety from us you can be certain that is exactly the variety you will get.  With generic ziplock bags packed in someone’s garage you never really know, do you?
