I dry-hopped my version of this yesterday. It is tasting nice from a sample I took then. I was planning on ordering this kit, but when I ended up with an extra 6lbs Pilsen LME, I just bought the hops and specialty grains from the recipe from my local store. I substituted the Pilsen LME for the DME and LME that the kit would have had. So that is what I brewed. The beer is about 5.3%. Also I used dry US-05 instead of any liquid yeasts they were suggesting. Kegging on Tuesday. Hearing all these great reviews is making me thirsty...

FYI this kit is on sale (free shipping). Use promo code GOPRO. My extract kit ended up being around $33 shipped to my door (including wyeast 1056, without priming sugar). Pretty good deal, I think. Looking forward to having it during the hot St. Louis summer.

I brewed this but used Wyeast 1272. Nice clean yeast did it's job. The .5 oz of Citra for the dry hop is just fine. Pulls through that signature aroma with no issues.

I've made this several times and always dry hopped. Nice light hoppy ale. Usually use S-05

Just brewed this today. I got the extract kit and did as a full boil. Typically for full boil extract would step down the hop additions but decided to leave as is. O.G. was right on target at 1.049. Only thing I am debating is whether to stick with the recipe and use .5oz citra to dry-hop or use the full 1oz. Looking forward to drinking this come July......the reviews sound great.

According to Beersmith, doing a full boil and then following the recipe is going to result in 56.6 ibus. Seems like a lot for a pale ale, but I'm going to proceed as is. I love IPAs, but I was trying to brew something with a little more mass appeal for summer bbqs. I'm sure it will be delicious either way. I do wish Beersmith had more choices when it comes to extracts. Didn't have the dry or liquid extracts in the database for this brew. That always frustrates me.
