I just made an all citra APA yesterday.  The wort smelled pretty tropical fruity; pretty excited for the beer.  I also don't get the negative attitude towards Simcoe.  They're delicious!  Made a Green Flash IPA clone last week which uses Simcoe, should be delicious.

Looks like I need to find some Galaxy.  Checked with my LHBS.  No luck.  In fact, they are saying they only got 2/3 of their entire order and have about 20 varieties that they are going to be short on.  Great.
I'm gonna have to milk my pound of citra for a while :(

If you can't find any. let me know. I'll hook a brother up with a batch worth.  8)

Thanks for the offer. Not sure about the border though...

Preliminary research reveals no issues. Check in to it and advise. No charge on the hops, just postage... 8)  Pm me if it's a go.

Elysian and New Belgium did a collaboration that I had about a month ago with Nelson Sauvin, Pacific Gem, and Galaxy. I think they also added a bit of actual Passion fruit juice... I thought it was really amazing, with great passionfruit flavor. Unfortunately, they are keeping the proportions under wraps. Just another hop variety that might be interesting. Also, as far as I know, March/April is when the big Southern Hemisphere hops come out, so it might be more difficult to find them this late.

The description on my pound bags of hops from Hop Union for Amarillo say passion fruit/tropical aroma.

And they certainly smell like that....Id be willing to bet your beer had quite a bit of Amarillo toward knockout.
