I'd move the last additions to a dry hop addition, really accentuate the flavor and aroma of the hop. Apollo is one of my favorites, great price and high alpha.

I don't know a lot about hop flavors yet, but I know that I love the flavors of West Coast IPA's (Chinook, Simcoe). How does the flavor and aroma profile of Apollo differ from the hops used in typical West Coast IPA's?

Never used Apollo before here either, but my own opinion would be to move the 10 minute addition to DH and leave the 20 and 5 minute additions where they are...my two cents.

Make sure to post about how this turns out.

I got a lemon aroma in mine. Was that my apollo hops, or the Coopers IPA extract?
