I'm brewing my last distinctly summer brew of the year soon.

What do you think about this? It's loosely based off of the SNPA recipe in Clone Brews: I'm looking for a light colored, clean, citrusy, easy-drinking APA. I'm thinking the spiciness of the saaz will be a nice compliment to the lemon.

Interesting. I have combined Cascade and Saaz before in a fruit beer but i have never added them simultaneously--I might be concerned that you will kind of negate their characteristics out by combining them. You might try flavoring with the cascade and finishing with the saaz. I could also be totally wrong, just a thought...

My first thought was to use all cascade for flavor and aroma, but I sometimes find that extreme citrus quality a little overwhelming in beers that use citrusy hops exclusively.
