Care to share the recipe?
11.33 lbs 2 row pale malt
0.4 lbs dextrine malt
0/3 lbs crystal malt 60L
0.2 lbs light Munich malt
8.25 AAU Horizon hops @60 min (0.75 oz of 11% alpha acid)
4.5 AAU Cascade hops @ 30 min (0.90 oz of 5% alpha acid)
1.25 AAU Willamette hops @ 30 min (0.25 oz of 5% alpha acid)
15.75 AAU Cascade hops @ 0 min (3.15 oz of 5% alpha acid)
1 tsp Irish moss @ 15 min
Wyeast 1056 American Ale yeast
mash at 154 degress. Boil for 90 minutes. Add hops at recipe times.
Let wort sit for 15 minutes before cooling.
LHBS did not have Horizon hops so I substituted Northern Brewer.
The Cascades were whole leaf, all others were pellets. As far as the
comparison goes, the taste is reasonably close, color was a shade darker
but still within style, and is similarly cloudy, but not murky.
Just found out that HBT provides photo storage, so here it is....
