Are Citra hops bitter?

Although classed as an “aroma hop,” given its alpha acid content of 11%–13%, Citra can also be used as a bittering hop, especially given that cohumulone is relatively low at 22%–24% of alpha acids. Citra matures mid-season and has moderate resistance to downy and powdery mildew.
