You tell us! Looks good to me, but the ultimate test is the taste test! Have you had any other this batch to drink yet?

Oh hey, sorry, haha.

The beer turned out really well. Very sweet, awesome hop flavor, I assume from the Amarillo. It's very light and drinkable. Best to cold-crash the bottles, if you ever use the WLP008 in the future, you'll realize it has terrible flocculation. It has to sit in the bottle/secondary for quite a while.

And to answer the questions, "Amarillo leaf" is just a way of saying that the hops are whole dried hops, not pellets or plugs. And I added most of the extract at the end to lighten the color of the beer. Search for "late extract addition" and you'll find tons of info.
