Motueka are awesome. Saugatuck Brewing in Michigan makes an great brew called Citrueka, with the aforementioned and you guessed it Citra.

I forgot to specify the yeast. I've been washing Wyeast American Ale so I'd probably go with that.

Don't know about the hops, because I've never used them, but 40% crystal in an IPA?
IMO, that's way too much.

WAY too much crystal as mentioned above. Keep it to 10% max...

OK, I'll dial down the crystal. That's the type of feedback I need. Thanks!

That's still a lot of carapils. I would probably leave the crystal and drop the carapils down to no more than 8 oz.

You're mashing. You don't need CaraPils. I'd sub in another pound of 2-row and use a pound of Crystal 60L.

It sounds positively yummy, regardless!
