I really like the looks of that! The hops aren't muddled, with the variety you have?

(Damn metric system- and you mixing up pounds and grams. It will become clearer after another beer, I'm sure. )

The hops work really well together - a lot of citrus and tropical fruit. Sorry about the mixed units! I just find it more precise to measure hops in grams, especially for the bittering addition. 28g = 1oz and 14g = 0.5oz

Let me know how it looks after that next beer.

Sounds delicious, one question to educate me, why the pilsner, does it make an impact?

The pilsner adds to the malt character and lightens it up a bit. Not sure how much of an impact it truly has, but I've heard of several breweries doing this, so I thought it was worth a try.

How does the burton ale yeast come off in an IPA? I thought it might overwhelm the typical IPA hoppy characteristics.

The yeast worked fine in this brew - at least, it did not seem to detract from the overall beer. It's hard to say how much character it gave in the end since this brew was dominated by the hops. I used the English strain after hearing about a number of commercial breweries doing it (e.g. Lagunitas), but this beer would certainly work well with a more "traditional" yeast for American IPAs like wlp001.
