Hops - Cryo Citra
Citra was introduced in 2008 and is one of the most popular aroma hop in brewing. Citra has a strong citrusy aroma with great notes of grapefruit lime and tropical fruits. Citra is best suited for late boil and dry hopping.
Cryo hops are a revolutionary hop product developed by Canadian company Yakima Chief, and distributed by partner company YCH Hops.
The production begins by cryogenic separation of what they have named “LupuLN2®” and the remaining debittered leaf content
LupuLN2® is the concentration of resins and aromatic oils that make up the plants lupulin. This allows for heavy, late addition hopping to provide intense hop flavour and aroma, while avoiding astringency. Using Cryo Hops at about half the dosage, by weight, provides a more intense juicy and resinous character, than its whole hop counterpart.
