2 oz Cascade 5.5% 15 min
1 oz US Golding 5% 1 min
1 oz Simcoe 13% 1 min
1 oz US Golding Dry Hop
1 oz Simcoe Dry Hop

Glad you like it!

Grain bill looks pretty good, though the gravity is a little high. Drop the Cascade and up the Simcoe at the end of the boil and dryhop to around 2 oz each and you've pretty much got it. You want to target 50 IBUs.

I'm looking for a classic American Pale Ale recipe to brew down here in New Zealand. What's the taste like on this. From the hops you have I want to give it a go.

If you have never tried it this beer, it is a true Grapefruit bomb. I also have an awesome APA recipe i'm brewing right now too If you want something a little lighter but still hoppy. Look up the Highland Little hump and let me know if you'd like it!! Its pretty insanely good.

I think that would be ok. Maybee Citra would be a good substitute too.
