Brewed this up today, ended with around 6 gallons at 1.053, a little bit higher then i was expecting, but im not worried. i was also lazy, and instead of splitting between dennys fav 50 and us-05, pitched only dennys fav 50 for all 6 gallons. gonna dry hop in 2 weeks, and bottle a week after that.

Quick update, dry-hopped this on friday, going to try to bottle tonight, if i can get the rest of the hop particles to fall down to the bottom of the carboy. Decided to bottle a little earlier because i want to it be ready in time for family to try. Everything seems fine, hopefully ill remember to check the gravity before i bottle it all.

Opened up the first bottle yeterday. Pretty hazy from the yeast, and little head, so it still needs some time in the bottle. However, the taste was amazing! Its got a light honey-like sweetness with a delicious and quite complex hop flavor, ending with faint blackberry notes. All in all its fantastic so far, just needs another week or two to fully condition. Ill update again when that happens.

Final tasting notes: this thing is damn tasty! it starts with a light honey-like malty sweetness, followed by an intense, yet very refreshing hop flavor/aroma. my friend described it as strawberry rhubarb-like, and have heard nothing but positive remarks about it. Only downside is it came out pretty hazy, didn't realize how much low flocculation dennys fav 50 yeast is. Very good head though, and a nice body with very low bitterness. Definitely came out more of a blonde ale than a pale ale, definitely will brew this again for summer!
