Not sure if folk have paired Motueka and Citra but I'd be interested to hear if you think its a good combo and in what sort of ratios. The TTA recipe calls for a heap of Amarillo as a dry hop. I'd rather use up one or both of my NZ hops first before buying another 100g bag if I can - I tend to do small batches so while I'm likely to use most of a 100g bag of Citra in this one (then maybe do a SMaSH with the rest) I'd really like to make use of these others NZ hops first. Starting to accumulate hops in the freezer!

Thanks for any info!
One way to find out, try one of them,possibly the motueka.Have used Motueka a few times and really like it.

Yeah that was always gonna happen Just wondered if people had tried them. The lime zest vibe might work well and the other hop is Rakau so I'd say it will work fine to complement those Citra flavours.

Should be making this either Thursday or Friday so I'll chime in again when its underway!

Made this last week - tasting bitter on the sample I tried last night but a nice fruity finish. Hoping that once it's fermented out and settled it might lose some bitterness (I had hop matter floating in the sample) but we shall see. It's gone done from 1.064 to 1.009 and still activity in the airlock so should finish at a good abv. but hopefully not too 'alcoholic' in taste. It might lose some finesse in the tasting!

I'll report back with final numbers - if anyone is using the Grainfather brewing community/app the recipe is listed as Totally Tallawah Pale Ale - I've made some changes to the recipe as posted earlier in this thread by @pvt_ak. Golden Promise was my main base malt and the NZ hops were used along with Citra. I used Yeast Bay Vermont yeast...full details on the GF recipe/app/community page.

I may tweak this one further amd make it again with only flameout and whirlpool hop additions but let's see how I get on!

I really enjoy this hobby!
