Did the Citra IPA come out too sweet or was it nicely balanced? The one "Citra IPA" I had was like drinking juice.

Austin's Union Jack Clone (extract)

I'm just starting to get into IPAs and love Firestone Walker's Union Jack. Has anyone tried the clone kit from Austin Homebrew? Is it similar or are the hop characteristics different? I hate IPAs...

Thanks for the advice, I guess next brew will be more of an American IPA.

I have an ounce of Williamette sitting there idle in the freezer. Would that be a good dry-hop to match with the EKG?

Why is it that every store I start to like goes downhill?

First it was NB getting rid of flat-rate shipping.

Had my first Heady Topper

After many months I finally got my hands on a Heady Topper. Let me start by saying I am not a big IPA fan, with Harpoon and Goose Island being my favorite, but I will often pass on IPA all together....

I have always hated IPAs for basically the same reason as OP but this year I got into Harpoon's IPA. It has more of a malt profile (yet still bitter) and the pine/grapefruit/resin doesn't stand out....

Sam Adams seems to have changed their recipe in the past few years. It used to be my favorite, now all I get is a super dose of Crystal 120 that makes it syrupy. Anyone else notice this?

Thanks for the reply!

I've never worked with a yeast that slows down like that, most yeasts I work with I am dealing with blow-off and krausen clogging the tube, so this one threw me a curveball.

Only an initial reading (1.053), I hate popping the lid unless I absolutely have to as I am paranoid about risking an infection. If it stops all activity I wouldn't hesitate to do a reading though.
