Im working on a Pale Ale recipe that i am going to brew this weekend.

I am working off a recipe from brewing classic styles, but i was thinking that i would use Amarillo, Cascade, and Centennial hops instead of Horizon, Columbus, and Centennial.

Do you think using Amarillo, Cascade, and Centennial will be too much citrus? Should I use

( my malts are about 11 pounds of two row, .75 pounds of munich, 0.5 pounds of crystal 40)

~"A fine beer may be judged with only one sip, but it's better to be thoroughly sure.

On Deck: Spruce APA, Chambord Fortified Chocolate Porter, Imperial IPA

Secondary: Belgian Dark Strong Ale
Lagering: None
Kegged/Drinking: Cascade, Cent., Amarillo Pale Ale
Kegged/Drinking: Belgian Pale Ale (HG yeast for yeast cropping see above)
Bottled: ESB

You can never have too much citrus hops, my last beer was an APA with Chinook at 60 mins, Cascade at 15 mins and then Amarillo & cascade at 1 min. Turned out to be one of my best beers ever. Full recipe here:
Dublin, Ireland
Kegged - Session Stout, Cascade IPA
Bottled - ISO Standard Stout, Steam Punk California, Session Stout

I've got one in primary right now with late additions of Amarillo and Centennial. I think it's going to be a great combo!
