I am very satisfied with how this recipe turned out. I like working with citrusy hops like Centennial, and sticking to a single hop is certainly a great way to figure out that hop's flavor profile. I chose Centennial because I thought the citrus flavor would complement that bit of sweetness from the Crystal malt in an amber very well, and I'm glad I went that route. This beer has fantastic color, a nice golden orange (forgive the low-rez pic, SWMBO has the nice camera today - I'll update with a good pic later). It pours from the keg with about 1/2 in. of creamy off-white head that fades into a thin ring that laces all the way down. The cara-pils gives this brew a nice mouthfeel, a bit creamy and some great lasting sweetness on the back end. Aroma is like like if you grabbed a grapefruit and drizzled it with caramel sauce - delicious! Taste is nice, with a bit of hop bite and some nice play with the Crystal malts. Give it a whirl, it's a nice fall brew!

Love the name, the label, the description... I think I might even love you

Will brew this one sometime in summer, might even use your label if that is ok with you

Totally fine! Hope you enjoy it when you get around to it. I actually have another batch of this kegged at the moment, and it is just as refreshing when it's still 25 degrees out!

Brewing this on Sunday- your last recipe I made up was fantastic (Cascadian, I think) and I expect no less from this one! Kyle

Glad you liked the CDA, hopefully this one treats you just as well! In fact, I just kicked another keg of this last night!
