I read that possible chinook can behave differently as a bittering/flavoring hop addition vs dry hopping with it. I will take some of your suggestions to thought and see where it goes...
In the mean time I have a full keg of the best beer I've brewed to help with that, so thanks for the recipe, it's great!
Maybe you should try doing an English Style IPA with EKG?
Here's an example recipe:
