I am very satisfied with how this recipe turned out. I like working with citrusy hops like Centennial, and sticking to a single hop is certainly a great way to figure out that hop's flavor profile. I chose Centennial because I thought the citrus flavor would complement that bit of sweetness from the Crystal malt in an amber very well, and I'm glad I went that route. This beer has fantastic color, a nice golden orange (forgive the low-rez pic, SWMBO has the nice camera today - I'll update with a good pic later). It pours from the keg with about 1/2 in. of creamy off-white head that fades into a thin ring that laces all the way down. The cara-pils gives this brew a nice mouthfeel, a bit creamy and some great lasting sweetness on the back end. Aroma is like like if you grabbed a grapefruit and drizzled it with caramel sauce - delicious! Taste is nice, with a bit of hop bite and some nice play with the Crystal malts. Give it a whirl, it's a nice fall brew!

Totally fine! Hope you enjoy it when you get around to it. I actually have another batch of this kegged at the moment, and it is just as refreshing when it's still 25 degrees out!

Brewing this on Sunday- your last recipe I made up was fantastic (Cascadian, I think) and I expect no less from this one! Kyle

Glad you liked the CDA, hopefully this one treats you just as well! In fact, I just kicked another keg of this last night!
