Recipe Type: All Grain   
Yeast: S-05   
Batch Size (Gallons): 5.5   
Original Gravity: 1.051   
Final Gravity: 1.012   
IBU: 25.8   
Boiling Time (Minutes): 60   
Color: 21.8   
Primary Fermentation (# of Days & Temp): 21 Days @ 68F   
Tasting Notes: Great mouth feel but could use a touch more aroma. Well balanced and easy to drink   

Ingredients:
------------
Amount Item Type % or IBU
7.50 lb Pale Malt (2 Row) US (2.0 SRM) Grain 75.00 %
1.00 lb Caramel/Crystal Malt - 60L (60.0 SRM) Grain 10.00 %
1.00 lb Victory Malt (25.0 SRM) Grain 10.00 %
0.50 lb Chocolate Malt (350.0 SRM) Grain 5.00 %
1.00 oz Cascade [6.30 %] (60 min) Hops 20.6 IBU
0.50 oz Cascade [6.30 %] (15 min) Hops 5.1 IBU
2.50 oz Fresh sweet valencia orange zest (5 min)

This one turned out really good so far - and has only been on gas for a little over a week - I will update the thread as this beer ages.

The fresh orange zest adds a subtle aroma and combines well with the cascade hops to give this a refreshing, citrusy taste. Despite mashing @ 151 this beer has more body than I was expecting.

I have it carbonated at 13psi @ 40F.

Very easy to drink and a great session beer for summer.

Next time I may add some .25-.50oz. coriander with the orange zest and possibly a late hops addition to add a bit more aroma.
