Yes, Citra hops. This is a new, popular hop with homebrewers and it is easy to see why.
Sierra Nevada used this hop variety in their Torpedo Extra IPA. I think beer lovers and homebrewers are impressed with its tropical fruit flavor and aroma and the complexities that come with that sort of flavor profile. I did some research into the variety and I present it here.
This is a compilation of the information that is out there about Citra hops:
It was bred as a hybrid of a number of different hops. The breakdown is as follows:
50% Hallertauer Mittelfrüh
25% U.S. Tettnanger
25% East Kent Golding, Bavarian, Brewers Gold, and other unknown hops.
Origin: USA! USA! Presented at the World Brewing Congress in August of 2008.
Aroma/Flavor: Lots of descriptors out there: Citrus, peach, apricot, passion fruit, grapefruit, lime, melon, gooseberry, lychee fruit, pineapple, mango, papaya and other tropical fruit flavors and aromas. So, ah, fruity.
I found one more: Guava.
Alpha Acid: 10 to 12%
Typical Usage: Flavor and Aroma. Plus, you could brew a pretty great single hop beer with Citra.
Beer Styles: So far, IPAs but I think any style where you want to showcase hop flavors and aromas.
Since I wrote this post, these hops have become widely available. You can find them for sale online at many homebrew shops.
