    Lol, me too. I'll trade a bottle of my homebrew IPA for yours. Mine is Columbus for bittering, and Simcoe, Citra, Amarillo, and Mosaic for aroma/flavor/dry hop. 17oz in a 6 gallon batch total (1oz bittering, 8 oz dry hops and 8 oz of late additions).

    I'll have pics up once it's done and carbed.

    Does Zombie Dust taste like PseudoSue? Never had Zombie, but I have had Pseudo and have a growler of it in my fridge right now. It's definitely a good beer but not any kind of orgasmic experience for me.

    Knee Deep's Simtra is a combination of Simcoe and Citra. Hence the name...Simtra

    Also...Zombie Dust and Kern Citra DIPA are my faves.

    Obviously ZD, but HF Susan has a Citra in it and it's quite noticeable even though they use a combo of hops.

    Recently grabbed some Odd Side Citra since they started bottling. The same week, I had acquired a fresh bottle of Zombie Dust. I did a blind side-by-side and easily picked Zombie as the better of the two. That said, I still would drink Odd Side's Citra all day...it's that good.

    Kern River Citra, easy. So damn good. By the way Simple Citra from Rustic was one of my least favorite beers. I like "almost" everything we make.

    Flower Power is off the hook. Recently had Single Hop Citra IPA from Flying Dog as well...pretty damn tasty.

    Now that I have had Zombie Dust, I would deifnitely rank it ahead of Psuedo Sue. Both good, but Zombie a bit better. Still not a Top ten for me though. Guess Citra just are OK to me.

    Backcountry Brewing's Fix Your Heel 2.0 DIPA takes the cake for me, although it's not too common.
    Zombie Dust would be next.

    Dark Horse's Artic Dekoorc Eert was very nice and the most flavorful of that variety pack.

    Zombie Dust, it gets better the more you have it. No wonder people buy it by the case at FFF and it's sold out at the brewery every couple days

    I love KRBC Citra. But I just received a 4 day fresh bottle of Double Sunshine. One of the best beers I have ever had, if not the best. Simply amazing beer. Now I just need more !
