<original post below>
Since I've got 13lbs of hops coming my way, I wanted to finally put together a nice hop bomb. I'm new to the recipe construction phase, and it started off as what I use for my IPA and I just started adding and moving stuff around and the whatnot. I'm open to any suggestions.
<edit>I'm not set on any specific ingredients, I'd like to use Columbus and Nugget at the minimum, and no, I don't have any simcoe in stock, saq

I've got Amarillo, Cascade, Centennial, Chinook, Columbus, Crystal, Magnum, Nugget, Williamette
Grains: 20, 40, 60, CaraPils, Munich and Vienna, but I can get something else if need be

I would cut the crystal and munich to 1# each and add more pale or even sugar. It's gonna be on the sweet side as is but YMMV.

I'd drop the Crystal and Munich down to 5% and mash at 151*F. Otherwise ... ship it.

I too would cut the crystal. 2#'s Munich won't hurt though if you like that character.

For my tastes I think this would produce too sweet a beer. I'd add some sugar, and a low mash temp.

Keep in mind, the hop resins from 9oz's of hops will add a lot of body and mouthfeel.

As said above. I would add some sugar just to dry it out a little

Ok, so I've updated it to..

14 lbs Pale Malt (2 Row) US (2.0 SRM) Grain 87.50 %
1 lbs Caramel/Crystal Malt - 60L (60.0 SRM) Grain 6.25 %
1 lbs Munich Malt (9.0 SRM) Grain 6.25 %

Mash at 151

keeping the same hop schedule.

Any better?

Looks good on they crystal now. You really do need some sugar in such a big beer to help dry it out. Otherwise, it will finish too high and be too syrupy.

I'm not a huge fan of Nugget. In my experience even as a bittering hop there's too much of a grassy flavor it imparts to the beer. I'd go with some Galena or Simcoe.
