I'm wondering if anyone has made a summit / cascade APA and the results? Looking to make a test batch this weekend.

I have and it turned out amazing! The tangerine from the summit plays very well with the grapefruit from the cascade. Give it a go! Make sure to dry hop with both as well.

I have one finishing right now to be kegged in about a week. So far the samples have been great. Neither my wife nor I are big hop heads, but we both like this combo.

Cool thanks guys - what was your bittering charge? I like my apas really balanced and read a little goes along way with summit - I was thinking .5oz at 60 summit and everything else at 20 and under
I did an IPA and used 2 oz Summit in the last 5 minutes.Tangerine and
orange pulp flavor.May be my new favorite hop.Although 2 oz of Simcoe
as a dry hop addition may have influenced that as well.
That's my house pale ale!
4 oz carapils
4 oz victory
8 oz crystal 40
1/2 oz summit at 60
1/2 oz each summit & cascade at 15
1/2 oz cascade at flameout
comes in at about 40 IBU, 10 SRM, 5.5 abv
It's just a real nice APA
0.5 oz Cascade First Wort Hopping
0.5 oz Summit at 60 minutes
1.0 oz Cascade at 15 minutes
1.0 oz Cascade at Flame out
1.0 oz Cascade dry hopped for four days
Great thanks for all the ideas guys
