What do you use to get such good clarity, besides a good hot/cold break?

Lager it after it's carbed up in the bottles. I stick my beers in the fridge for three weeks or so after the first two weeks of getting bottled, not only do they come out super super clear, the yeast cake is so tight in the bottom of the bottle that I'm able to pour out the whole beer without disturbing it

^^^ It's mostly this. I keg, so the beer "lagers" in the fridge for a few weeks before i tap it. By the second week they are crystal clear.

A little gelatin also goes a long way. 1tsp on gelatin mixed in 1cup of 150* water added straight to the keg can work wonders. Try just leaving a bottle of your beer in the fridge for 3 weeks, and see what happens.

pulled my first draft of this tonight, no where near as clear as yours. has an odd taste, but dunno if that just my taster or the beer. a brew friend tried it with me, he was either really polite or really liked it

How long has it been on draft? Mine have a little odd taste for about a week in the keg, it's like a weird mix of the carbonation and the dry hops. After a week, it's gone and tastes delicious.

Hey Scott, care to comment on the 2lbs Pale Ale Malt (3.5L) addition? How different is it from the regular plain Jane 2 row? Is it just for color, or is it maltier? I've got this one on the list of to-brews, but I'm curious how important it is.

It's not that critical. It just adds a little bready maltiness. You could easily substitute a pound of Vienna.
