    I've been really enjoying Sierra Nevada's Torpedo apa since it's back in NE. I like the citrus aroma and flavor I get from Torpedo although I feel it's a little heavy on the pine side. Any other suggestions on good citra hop brews?

    Zombie Dust is by far my favorite.

    Coming in second is Against the Grain's Citra Ass Down.

    I came here to say Zombie Dust but want to give an honorable mention to my new favorite brewery, Pipeworks and their Citra Ninja beer. Awesome stuff!

    Gotta go with White Rajah considering it's my favorite IPA, although it's not 100% citra, it's still the star of the show..

    I would not call Torpedo a citra hop beer, under any circumstances.

    I don't like citra hops much because I feel they fall off into cat pee very quickly. That said, I love Anchor's Brekles Brown, which is the best use of Citra IMO

    I thought Flying Dog's single hop Citra Double IPA was excellent. I wish it was more than just a flash in the pan draft-only offering. Maybe with some luck we will see it bottled in the future, but I'm not holding my breath.

    Toppling Goliath PsuedoSue. Probably not my absolute favorite, but just throwing out an off the radar selection.
