I like it. Nothing too crazy. Looks very balanced, dark and excellent. Hard to mess something up with Columbus, Centennial and Cascade!

I've since done it with a citra dry hop (2 oz to replace the centennial/cascade)...i think that keg went even faster.

I dry hopped 7 days w/Citra & bottled it last weekend. Finished at 1.015. I drank a hydrometer cylinder full. It was already amazing. I'm probably gonna let it condition another week before I .......wait just now opened one. Needs another week but I can tell it's gonna be good. Kinda reminds me of a Founders porter right now.
Thanks again.
