TASTING UPDATE:

Cracked the first bottle yesterday and i'm pretty happy.
It cleaned up really well and is the color of a nice pale ale without too much cloudiness. Amazingly thick head that lasts and leaves some lacing.
Good hop aroma without being too floral, nice spicy notes. I seem to smell a off flavor but can't place it.
It starts off clean and moderately bitter with a little less sweetness/maltiness than i like as the balance is a little off. It has a short finish and dries off the palate pretty fast.


Thanks for everyone's help on this brew.

Thanks for an update on this brew. Will you do another update in a couple weeks as the beer is likely to change by then.
