When I think of Citrusy Hops I think of the IPA at the Rock Bottom in Glendale Arizona. It has massive amounts of Amarillo and Cascade hops in it. Your nose gets hit with Grapefruit and  Orange as soon as you get it close to your face and the taste is perfect the bitterness is just perfect YUM YUM.  The name of it is Desert Trail Pale Ale but it is a true IPA. They also Have a double IPA it is called Feel the Burn  :o. It has the same Hops in it just twice as bitter at true Hop Head Fantasy.
