I didnt want to use citra since i used that already in another ipa. What about bittering with apollo and then using Amarillo, Mosaic and Simcoe?
I think that would be good but remember you want little if any bittering hops in a NEIPA as mentioned already.
Smell your Apollo. I've had mixed results with it. Some years it is rather bland, but I've had Apollo that had some amazing orange + dank aroma and would be a perfect fit for a late addition in an NE IPA.
I also would like to hear hops suggestion for this style, something different to citra and galaxy.
Aside from the ones already mentioned: Vic Secret (passionfruit), Nelson Sauvin (grapefruit, muscat), Caliente (red plums), Enigma (citrus/fresh spruce tips) would all be good choices that would set your beer apart from the typical Citra/Galaxy options.
