Looks great to me, was really happy with a similar batch I did a few months back.

I'm not sure you'll be able to taste much of the Willamette considering the big late-boil additions, but it certainly won't hurt.

Half a pack of yeast might be underpitching slightly, especially if you aren't rehydrating. Mr. Malty says .7 packs, but you'll probably be fine either way.

Good luck.
