Have you tried this? What'd you think?

One of, if not the best beer I've ever made. It's definitely a distinctive taste, but there are a couple of commercial versions out there like Green Flashes Le Freak.

When I make it again, I will be upping the IBUs some more and probably layering in another hop with the Sterling.

Could you put the AA% for the hops in the recipe?

Where do you get your "beet sugar" from? Or do you just use belgian candi sugar?

Unless you live in Hawaii, it's a safe bet the sugar sold at your grocery store is beet sugar.

do you add yeast for the bottle condition?

Naw, plenty left from fermentation.
