Did you add both the citra and chinook dry hop additions at the same time and let them marinate for 7 days together ?

Both were pellet and dry hopped together for the same time. It helps to crash cool the beer to compact some of the hop before transfer.

i made an extract version of this, but used only 1 oz of chinook. 4 oz of citra in the boil, 2 oz citra dn 1 oz chinook in the dry hop. this is absolutely fantastic. i added 4 oz of honey malt and some victory. it smells like a tropical florist, and the malt body is nice and sweet with just enough bitterness. one of the best beers i've made!

Glad to hear. I haven't brewed this beer in a while due to my lack of Citra. I Loved this beer.

If you are a hoppy brown ale fan I have a killer Oatmeal Brown ale recipe.

10 lbs pale two row
1 lb quick oats
10.oz pale chocolate
8. oz special B
8. oz crystal 60

Mash for 60 @ 154

1/2 oz Chinook FWH
1.0 oz Cascade @15
1.0 oz Chinook @5
1.5 oz Chinook @ flameout with a 15-20 minute whirlpool.

Shoot for 40 IBU's and 5.4% abv

Ferment with US-05, 001, 1056 until done. Kind of like Arrogant bastard meets oatmeal brown.
This sounds stellar, any one else try it? Chinook and oatmeal brown...mmm
