Hmmmm... I have mostly been using nugget in my IPA's (which is my favorite style, and therefore the one I have brewed the most)
I've never done anything with Columbus or Centennial, but this thread has me thinking I should!
I've mostly been bittering with Nugget or Magnum and using various combinations of Cascade and Amarillo for flavor and aroma.
I just came across this recipe for a 3C IPA
using centennial, columbus, and cascade that I may give a shot.
Has anyone brewed this or something similar? What would you change about it?
