OK, I'm working off the following guidelines from my hometown brewery to get a session IPA. The following is from Boulevard Brewery for their Single Wide IPA. Below that is what I've worked up in Beersmith. I'm doing a double Boulevard batch this weekend, I already ordered my Boulevard Pale Ale AG kit from Austin Homebrew, and will be ordering the ingredients for the Single Wide from Brewmasters shortly.

inspired by our Smokestack Series Double-Wide I.P.A. the Single Wide boasts a heady combination of six varieties of hops, some of which were employed for dry-hopping
SENSORY DESCRIPTION: Slightly hazy, golden bronze in appearance. Aroma is flowery, with hints of citrus and fresh mown hay. Assertive hop signature, yet well balanced with a crisp, dry finish.
