That is a horrifying column of text. It is hard to figure stuff out...

I get that it is Cecilius and could really not care about that... But how much, in pounds or KG/G are you useing of each ingredient? To me it looks like you are planning to use 10lbs of honey malt and that would be WAY TO MUCH. But I just don't know that recipe is a "hot mess" Head over to the Recipe secion and take a look at how most recipes are posted. Then copy pate one into something and fill in your info with weights.

I also do not believe any brew with a OG of 1.04X is going to be "to malty" for a pale ale style brew, even extract. It seems light IMO. A good way to figure out a way to make a balanced hoppy beer is to do a 1:1 ratio of last 2 gravity points to planned IBUs like 1.055 OG to 55 IBUs.

Hope this helps and happy brewing!

EDIT: I would also add a 7 minute addition of hops!

Here is the recipe. Sorry for format issues.
Yes I agree I need a 7-10 min hop addition

How's this?

I went ahead and brewed this up yesterday. Nice grapefruit aroma coming from cascade and magnum.

I upped the caramel, honey and pale malt by a bit to raise dl and abv.
