    I have a 100g bag of Riwaka in the freezer and I don't want to make a straight up IPA or DIPA as it's a little boring, wondering what to do with it.

    It's supposed to be very citrussy, so I could do a pale/IPA and add in mint which I have which makes the style a bit more exciting and original, but not sure if these flavours will go well together. Anyone have any ideas?

    I agree with oneflewover, lagers do well with citrussy hops

    A Citrus Wheat Beer should be ok with those hops

    +1 on this. Or a play on Duvel Tripel Hop Citra.

    I was thinking about a hoppy saison or lager, and I do like lagers, but the fished product usually ends up tasting like an IPA. I think a wheat beer can retain the flavours of a wheat beer as well as a mix of citrus flavours. I reckon I could also make it minty too. Thanks @the baron.

    Thanks everyone else as well for chipping in too!
