Default NB Shift

I'm looking to make a beer for the warmer weather coming up. I was thinking something along the lines of New Belgium Shift. The problem is I can't find a clone recipe anywhere online.

Does anyone have a clone recipe for Shift or a recipe for something along the same line?

Anyone have a clone for this? Or even a completely different recipe for something in the same style?

Nelson Cream Ale
--------------------------

Boil Size: 6.5 gal
Post Boil Volume: 5.5 gal
Estimated OG: 1.054 SG
Estimated Color: 4.3 SRM
Estimated IBU: 20.2 IBUs
Brewhouse Efficiency: 75 %
Boil Time: 60 Minutes

Ingredients:
------------
Amt Name
6 lbs 5.3 oz Brewers Malt 2-Row (Briess) (1.8 SRM)
2 lbs Vienna Malt (Weyermann) (3.0 SRM)
1 lbs Cara-Pils/Dextrine (2.0 SRM)
8.0 oz Caramel Malt - 10L (Briess) (10.0 SRM)
0.25 oz Nelson Sauvin [12.10 %] - Boil 60.0 min
1.00 Items Whirlfloc Tablet (Boil 15.0 mins)
0.25 oz Nelson Sauvin [12.10 %] - Boil 15.0 min
0.75 oz Nelson Sauvin [12.10 %] - Boil 2.0 min
1.0 pkg German Ale/Kolsch (White Labs #WLP029)
0.50 oz Nelson Sauvin [12.10 %] - Dry Hop 5.0 Day


90 min mash @ 150F

Notes:
------
1/5/13: Brewed. Fermented @ 62F
1/13/13: Racked to secondary
1/31/13: Move to keg in garage for cold conditioning - 4wks. Avg temp in low 40's

I modified one of the BeerSmith email recipes (Cream Ales) and tried to come up with a reasonable approximation of NB's Shift, but without the lagering. I ended up using the WLP029 Koelsch yeast that I had in my fridge and following a pre-prohibition cream ale path. The grape fruitiness of the NS hops really works well against the light malt, but next time I'll probably delay the 15min hop addition to back off on the final bitterness by a tad.
