Recipe Type: All Grain   
Yeast: S-05   
Batch Size (Gallons): 5   
Original Gravity: 1.075   
Final Gravity: 1.014   
IBU: 67.6   
Boiling Time (Minutes): 90   
Color: 12.3   
Primary Fermentation (# of Days & Temp): 10   
Secondary Fermentation (# of Days & Temp): 10   
Tasting Notes: See below   

Nice citrus aroma. A pleasant, up front flavor, of grapefruit and tangerine. Balanced malt flavor, with a slight bitterness. Nice, clean and crisp finish.

I have had a few people tell me that Summit hops don't work well in an IPA. I would have to disagree with that. They add a really nice flavor profile that you really don't expect in an IPA. It keeps your interest as you try to figure out what that extra hop flavor is. A very good compliment to amarillo and simcoe that seems to balance/round out the grapefruit/citrus flavors.

This placed 3rd in India Pale Ale(Cat.14) at the Homebrew at the Web competition with a score of 42.3.

Some overall impressions from the judges:

Judge 1--- "Well crafted beer. Unusual hop choice adds complex interest and appreciation. No off flavors or aromas. Very refreshing."

Judge 2--- "Very good beer. Great use of hops to really be the showcase and being able to punch the mouth without causing very fast fatigue."

Judge 3--- "Very quaffable IPA. Hop character is superb while avoiding being too bitter. Would benefit from more malt sweetness and body though."

Thanks a lot for what looks like an interesting recipe.
I've altered it to create a black IPA, and I'm excited to brew it hopefully sometime soon.
I dropped the crystal, added melanoidin and chocolate malts. Also changed up the hop schedule/quantities, but left the lineup the same. I'll be mashing at 152 for a little bit more body.
I'll check back in with recipe and eventually the results.

Good looking brew. I just ordered some bulk Magnum/Summit/Fuggles so I BeerSmithed it to swap out some hops and try to keep the IBU's same.

I'll post my results.
