I bottled it the other, tasted it and it was awesome and it is only going to be better after bottle conditioning! It smelled absolutely delicious.

This beer came out AWESOME! Although I slightly altered the beer, I have to give most of the credit to Matt for nailing the fermentables ratio. I think the recipe would prob work good for any citrus hop, it is a perfect platform for the the aromas and flavors.

Yeah. Just check the recipes drop down menu under my name.

I've repeated that Smola recipe a bunch of times with slight variations. I've found that 1.056 OG is nice, more impact in flavor. 1/2 oz of hops at 10 min and 0 min works nicely for me. I've used American hops for those additions, but the one I just brewed last weekend was Centennial at 10 min and EKGs at 0 min. Haven't tasted that one though, obviously. Any of the usual American hops would work for that one.

Special B can be used instead of Crystal 350 in that recipe, BTW.
