Citra ® LupulN2 (Cryo Hops) - 50g
Citra is a very popular American hop with a strong citrus character combined with tropical fruit.
LupulN2 pellets are different to standard T90 pellets. They are created through a cryogenic process where whole-leaf hops are separated into concentrated lupulin and bract at extremely low temperatures to preserve the essential oils and resins. LupulN2 hop pellets have approximately twice the potency of standard T90 pellets. This is particularly beneficial in highly hopped beers as only half the amount of hops are required to achieve the same result as standard T90 hops. This may reduce the risk of a green vegetal character being present in the finished beer.
It is recommended LupulN2 pellets are used primarily for flavour and aroma during the whirlpool and dry hop.
Citra LupulN2 pellets are well suited to Pale Ales, APA, and IPA.
