I wanted to showcase the 4 C's on this recipe. Fantastic hop aroma coupled with a balanced bitterness makes this 8.5% alcohol IIPA a sneaky character. No "hot" alcohols what so ever. With a TON of late hops, the bitterness is very subtle. Low mash temps help dry this beer out and really showcases all those lovely hops. I netted exactly 5 gallons on this recipe.

Sounds good! How noticeable is the Chinook from the mash hops?

That is a tough one....there is a definate grapefruit taste in the finish. I am unsure if it is from the Cascades or the Chinooks hops though. I don't get any of the signature piney/spicy tones from it at all.
