I am finally at the drinking stage for this beer. I really like the flavor and aroma, but IMO it is not the new Citra. On the nose I mainly get pear with a bit of marijuana. On the palate I get stone fruit and pear complimented by tangerine. The last thing I will note is that this hop is delicious all by itself. It is certainly blendable, but totally unnecessary.
As I said I really like it, but I don't think this is going to be an IPA hop. I think it will make an outstanding Pale Ale hop. The flavors aren't big enough for an IPA. They are wonderful, just too soft or delicate. And that is with a 9 oz. hopstand and 5 oz. for the dry hop.
Also FWIW we did do a total oils distillation on this hop. It came out at 1.2 (mL/100g)
I thought the same about it as an APA hop, Steve. I really like the character of it but wasn't able to get an IPA level punch with a hop schedule that normally gives intense hop character. SN's IPA version had a ton of great hop character FWIW (and was single hopped). I still like it and will use some in an APA this year.
