Default White IPA

I recently visited the Harpoon brewery in Boston and got to try some fresh White IPA from their 100 Barrel series. This beer is really good, clean, refreshing and has a great citrusy hop finish. Actually, my wife loves this beer so much she went out a bought a case of it! Anyway, here's what I came up with....

That looks really good! The Citras will give it a nice smooth fruity bitterness and flavor. The best Wit I ever had was a friend's homebrew and he used the same yeast.

Looks good! A very "smoooth" grain bill for sure! A little curious about the Cascade choice for bittering with Simcoe as a finishing hop. Intentional, or backwards? I've never finished with Simcoe, so it may be great (?), but 1oz of Simcoe at 60min would easily replace the 2oz cascade.

I've used simcoe once before for Aromatics and I really liked it. I like the grapefruity taste of the cascade so that's why I'm looking to bitter with it. Maybe it's a bit backwards but i'm willing to give it a shot. This is, unless someone has tried this and it turns out that it's a terrible idea haha
