This sounds good after having the Yellow Snow IPA by Rogue since it too is 100% Amarillo hops.

What can you compare it too?

That's a good question, I can't really compare it to a comercial brew. This is far from the original recipe that I had. I just kept adjusting the ingredients and hop schedule until I found what I like. I find it cleaner and crisper than SNPA, with a lot more citrus notes, almost grapefruit-like. The WLP001 finishes it pretty dry so there's not too much maltiness to it.

Why dry hop for 14 days? I thought the hops were basically useless after a week in the primary. Also what yeast did you use?

I made an all Amarillo APA with Marris Otter, Crystal 40 and Golden Light DME, 2 oz during boil and 1 oz dry hop for 5 days. I tried the first one at 4 weeks and was close to tossing the batch due to the dankness/cat piss aroma and flavors. I thought I screwed up and made an IPA by mistake.

Fast forward another 3 weeks and it's absolutely delicious and have gotten numerous compliments. Next time though, I might substitute some Citra during the boil.
