Nice!
All grain brewer with S-05 and first wort hopper. I altered it a bit by moving a little of the bittering hops back to late additions and dry hopping. Comes out very nice and smooth, definitely shows off the tropical furit of the Citra and not so assertively bitter as a result of the hop adjustments. If I had to do it over again, I would do as Tom N says below but just fully replace the bittering with Magnum and keep all of the Citra on the backend as late/flameout/dry additions.

Citra
This is the closest I could get to the iconic Sierra Nevada Pale Ale. I did mini-mash using Wyeast 1272. I took the advice of the last reviewer and used Magnum for bittering. Nine days in the first carboy then ten days in the second, dry hopping with Citra. I bottled 22 bombers for 28 days before start drinking. The beer is amber and hoppy. A nice, mellow head adds smoothness to the mouthfeel. This is a beer I will absolutely continue to brew. Batch #37. Forest Hills, NY.

Citra
Amber and hoppy this beer is medium body with a great aftertaste. A nice, mellow head adds smoothness to the mouthfeel. This is the closest I got from the iconic Sierra Nevada Pale Ale. I did mini-mash with Wyeast 1272. Nine days in the first carboy, ten days in the second and about a month in the bottles before I had one. I bittered with 1oz. Magnum just like the other reviewer did and dry hopped with the Citra. This is a beer I will absolutely continue to brew. Batch #37 Forest Hills, NY.

Great Kit with an extra ounce of Magnum
I brewed this kit about a month ago and bought an extra ounce of Magnum. I substituted the Magnum for the ounce of Citra at 60 minutes and used the left over Citra for a dry-hop after hitting the target FG and cold crashing to 40 degrees for two days. After 7 days dryhopping, I bottled this one yesterday and it is wonderfully aromatic and great tasting flat and warm. I highly recommend this kit.

Classic Review
I have really fallen for the Citra Hop, especially as a flavor and aroma hop. I have finished two batches of this (and brewed my third batch today). This recipe is really unique and little dark than most pal ales. I used the extract version and really liked the basic recipe. With my third version, I decided to substitute the Citra Hop bitter hop with 1 oz. of Chinook as Citra gets a bit catty as a bitter hop.
