I just made an IPA using centennial, it's still in primary. I based the malt bill off Pliny the Elder, but I didn't add the corn sugar. It was:

12 lbs 2 Row
.5 lb Crystal 40
.5 lb Carapils

FWIW, the only change I made to the recipe posted above was all hop additions other than the dry hop were 1 oz.

Any feedback?
I've done a few beers using Centennial for Bittering and I always find it to be a really harsh bittering hop. Not sure why but that is how it always comes across for me. It's great later in the boil and as a DH though.

I highly recommend brewing an all centennial IPA. My favorite is Bells Two Hearted Ale. http://beeradvocate.com/beer/profile/287/1093

I've brewed it but used 2 oz dry hop and it tasted amazing. Very close to Bell's

I love bells two hearted and it was the inspiration behind this. Not a clone, but wanted to come close. I have brewed an all centennial before, but the hop profile was totally different, while the hop bill was almost identical.

Where did you get your hops from? Your first batch was local, whole cone... Does that mean home-grown? I think hop harvesting is a lot harder than most people think. If you don't pick or dry it just right it can end up grassy, herbal.

No, the all Columbus was locally grown. The centennial hops were purchased at the LHBS. Pellets. Measured from a hops union bag

I just finished this keg last night and I am bothered on how this turned out.

Given what listed above, the beer had a spicy/over bitter off flavor and I have been trying to figure it out for over a month.

The only things I can think of are that the flavor was effected by my repitching of I wp001 slurry from previous all Columbus batch, and might have over pitched as fermentation did not take off and I pitched another vial of the wp001.

I also mashed on the low end and did not use any crystal malt at all a maybe this was a little to dry to match the 70ish IBUs.

Anyone have ideas?

I personally would have had a little bit of Crystal and some CaraPils in there if it were me. Also if it finished too dry you could not only try mashing at a higher temp, but you could try mashing for a shorter time period as well.

You might be able to smooth out the bitterness a bit by first-wort-hopping your bittering addition.

I know Stone IPA is mostly Centennial hops, so I know Centennial IPAs can turn out tasty. If you want to stick with it just keep tweaking the recipe and you'll get it dialed in.
