Also to know is, what goes well with Citra hops?

Personally I would bitter the beer with magnum, and most people would suggest pairing the citra with amarillo, cascade, or perhaps columbus for finishing, but I also think that goldings, northern brewer, or even tettnanger would be an interesting combination.

One may also ask, what hops go well with Simcoe? Member. Simcoe and crystal also work well together. We do a blend of simcoe, amarillo, columbus, and crystal at knockout in a fairly hoppy ipa.

Other American hops that work well together are Willamette, U.S. Fuggle, Yakima Golding, and Mt. Hood.

How do you dry hop?

The basic process of dry hopping, and one of the most common methods, is to simply siphon your beer out of your primary fermenter into a secondary fermenter and add hops. It is typically best to place your hops in a hop bag or other strainer in which they can be contained and still be in contact with your beer.

How do I know what hops to use?

Try a single malt and use a single hop for bittering, flavor and aroma. If you do this you can say, well the bitterness is a little harsh, but the flavor and aroma are great, or the aroma is a little much, but the flavor is awesome etc etc. This will get you a feel pretty quick.
