In order to end this whole ordeal, yins can send me the balance of the FF hops that you have.  No sense in everyone arguing about them.  I'll brew with them and everyone can sleep easier at this point.  I'll pay for the shipping and all will be well. 

No argument on the FF hops for me. You can't have 'em, and I'm probably gonna order about 66 lbs here in a week or two assuming it is available.  ;)

Re: Citra. Last year I made a pale ale around 60 BUs with all citra and I really didn't care for it at all. It was a beer I made annually and normally used all Amarillo with. The beer reminded me of that fruit flavored tea you find at some restaurants. Yuck! This was during the brewery build and I brought all 10 gallons down there and let the guys have at it. Most of them liked it very well, but not me.

Later I found that a light touch of citra blended with other hops turns out wonderful! I have a couple of pounds of it stored away and plan on using it lightly in a Saison later on this summer. I think the fruity "mango" character would go very well with the tart, spicy and fruity saison yeast.

Forgot I posted this! 

Thanks for the replies.  Think I'll try 5 gal of a wheat pale and then see if I want to bother with an IPA.  If it doesn't turn out I have a friend that'll gladly trade some beer.

It doesn't take much citra before a beer reminds me of cat urine but I have noticed this character fades to a point that it doesn't bother me. 

One of my theories for why this has such a strong association for me has to do with an old friend with a cat that pissed everywhere and love for the dank.  I think I might have developed some association between the two or at least the combination smell of his house.

Well my IPA is on tap. I'd say these hops have a aroma like Simcoe and a flavor more like Columbus. The bitterness seems lower than calculated.

Finally tried it last night in one of Nathan Smith's IPAs.  Seemed like a lot of the Simcoe was coming through.  Tasty hop blend, though.  It should make a really nice hoppy beer as long as you don't muddle it up with too much crystal or darker malts.

What a teaser, I was wondering where I could get some of these. :(

I think the stores all have their stock for the year of most hops. This is where I got mine.

Cool...glad they got it right there.  Glen was a friend and I don't want to see his name screwed up.

I'd rather have Simcoe and Amarillo. I'm still getting Simcoe/Columbus with some fruity stuff going on.
