    Toss up between Mosaic, Riwaka, Galaxy, and Nelson Sauvin. Honorable mention to Simcoe.

    Although I really like Citra, I feel that many times it doesn't offer as much citrus as the name might suggest. Obviously how a brewer uses it is a huge part of the equation, but generally speaking I find it's not always a sure bet to a super citrusy beer. Maybe its name sets my expectations too high.

    Citra - Zombie Dust, Oddside Citra Pale

    Not a fan of others on their own, but they can make some fantastic blends

    Citra for it's tropical juiciness, but another good one is Falconers Flight after trying the single hop On the Wings of Armageddon from DC Brau.

    Falconer's Flight isn't a hop variety, but rather a blend of various hop varieties and is sold exclusively by a company called Hopunion.

    Nelson Sauvin, Citra & my new fave Mosaic. Tough to mess any of those up.

    Is this even a question? Citra obviously, and I vote for Zombie Dust. I also enjoy Chinook and traditional Tettnanger, as I enjoy a good spicy/pungent hop kick every once in a while. But Citra is the perfect hop, period.

    I like this setup...can anyone else name an awesome trifecta of beers for each hop. I've never had Hopslam, but I love Jai Alai and Pliny...so I'm assuming that makes me a fan of Simcoe.

    Thanks!

    I don't know about a trifecta of beers but how about the trifecta of hops goes to hallertau, tettenang and saaz. (spelling - I am not responsible)

    The Citrusy hops.... I think Sucks is a good representative of them.

    Disagree, but understand where you're coming from....I would choose a more hop focused style for this thread every time. That said, noble hops are amazing in the right beer and deserve some rep

    Honestly, one of my dream beers is basically a Czech pilsner, traditional in every single way, except that near bottling time it is modestly dry-hopped with Citra. Same lagering period, same malt bill, same early and late boil hops....just add Citra.
