The Citra hops really made a nice grape-fruit flavor, debating if I should do a dry hop the last week before bottling. I have 1/2oz of Citra or some of the Cascade hops I have.

Good move on the 15 minute Citra addition!! I would definitely dry hop it. It really needs it.

+1 on the dry hop. Dry hopped mine and it turned out well. :cheers:

I guess since I already changed the recipe adding the dry hops are a must, lol

Now Citra or Cascade, I am thinking Cascade WHOLE hops since I have 3oz in a sack with weights

Trollby: I dry-hopped my Diablo with 1/2 oz of Citra and the grapefruit comes through like a refreshing, say a Fresca-type beer (a blast from the past dare I say)...The Diablo has such a Spruce or Piney aroma to it and me thinks the Citra brings the Grapefruit to the forefront. Let me qualify this comment by the fact I am NOT an IPA drinker, I like a more balance brew. The Northwest pale Ale hits a homerun with me. I might have to use the Diablo as a base for my future brewing of it but I will not order the Diablo again. IMHO
