Recipe Type: All Grain   
Yeast: Safale US-05   
Yeast Starter: If Liquid -Yes   
Batch Size (Gallons): 5.5   
Original Gravity: 1.054   
Final Gravity: 1.012   
IBU: 35   
Boiling Time (Minutes): 60   
Color: 8.2   
Primary Fermentation (# of Days & Temp): 14 days @64F   
Secondary Fermentation (# of Days & Temp): 7 days @70F   
Tasting Notes: Crisp, citrusy,very smooth, and not overly bitter for the level of hop flavor   

Assuming 82% efficiency (Add 2-row if you get less):

7lbs Pale Malt (2-row)
2lbs Pale Ale Malt (3.5L)
12oz Crystal 60L

0.5oz Simcoe @60min
1oz Cascade @15min
1oz Cascade @5min
1oz Simcoe @0min

Mash at 154*
Safale US05 fermented at 65*F

Dry hop from days 14-21 with:
0.5oz Cascade
0.5oz Simcoe

Targets: OG:1.054, FG:1.012, ABV:5.4%, IBU:35 SRM: 8.2L

This beer is fairly light in color for a pale ale. It's not very bitter, but it's very hoppy due to the late additions. Those familiar with Four Peaks can think of it as like a 'Baby' Hop Knot -- a simple pale ale version of their IPA.

Its become my go-to recipe for pleasing a crowd, and how sessionable it is. Picture of this beer to follow. It achieves commercial-level clarity after 2 weeks in the keg.

I've been wanting to try something with Simcoe in the mix and this looks right down my alley. May have to add it to the list. Thanks for the recipe.
