This chinook bomb is delicious. It's more beery and less fruit-punchy than some other hop combos - not sweet, no tropical fruits, just bitter grapefruit peel and resinous. I think it would pair very well with Cascade, or maybe even an English hop like Fuggles or EKG's.
The malt bill is inspired by Rogue Yellow Snow. I know they use these same malts, just not the proportions. This one seems to have worked out well, the melanoidin is really a subtle background player here, adding some dimension to the malt, a bit of breadiness. I've heard that this malt can be brothy, and I did get some of that throughout fermentation, but by the time I removed the dry hops it was gone.
