I did this a couple of year's ago with this recipe. I think I did all of my additions in the last 20 min of the boil and scaled up on the hops amount to hit the IBUs. Turned out very piney tasting. Not green of or off in any way, just intensely piney from the hops. Hate to admit this, but came home from cruising around the French Quarter on Mardi Gras day (after drinking a fair amount), cracked open a 32 oz of this late hopped Pale Ale and could only drink a few sips - way to piney tasting. The only homebrew I think I've ever dumped.
HOWEVER, this is one of my favorite recipes and I plan on brewing it this weekend and playing around with mash temp to see if I can get a maltier version.
