Default Reverse Engineering Imperial Ale

So far here's what I got:

Beer Style: Imperial Pale Ale
Hop Variety: Magnum, Cascade
Malt Variety: Two-Row Pale, C-150, Dark Munich, Honey Malt
OG: 1.076 Alcohol By Volume: 8.75% IBU's: 65
Color: Bright Amber

You might recognize this as the description Avery Brewing gives on its website for it's retired Ale to the Chief Imperial IPA.

I plugged some numbers into BeerSmith and arrived at close OG and IBU readings.

Can anyone confirm that C-150 is just a roasted Caramel (Crystal) with a 150L color or am I missing something?

Thanks

Mr. Jamo99:

Hey thanks. I'm trying to make something resembling Avery's Ale to the Chief. Hope Beersmith can break the code.
