Nice work! I love the disco ball! I have to figure out a way to include one in the new basement. They're so retro.

Just had my first taste of this and it's amazing. LHBS was out of Amarillo and true Centennial, so I was stuck adding only Centennial Type during the boil. Fortunately I was able to pick up the very last Citra for the dry hop and WOW. Awesome citrusy aroma and flavor.

I picked up some bulk Centennial, Amarillo, and Citra this month as the new harvest was coming out, specifically to continue making this brew. Looking forward to making many more batches of this!

Did this as my first AG batch tonight!

I way underestimated my efficiency... OG hit 1.062. Luckily I had extra cooled water to top off at the end, brought it to 1.056 exactly.

Smells amazing so far.

Let us know how you like it once you finish fermenting and bottle/keg it!

Drinking this after 4 weeks, and mine is far too bitter for an APA. I'm sure it will mellow out.

Did you make it to 37 IBU as the recipe calls for? The BJCP style guidlines say APAs are 30-45 IBU so this one's right smack dap in the middle.

Maybe you prefer less bitter beers?

Oh no, I'm a hophead. I can just tell it's more like 50-60 Ibus, but just doesn't have the sweetness from the alcohol to balance it out. I'll have to double check the AA on my hops.. Not a bad beer at all, just too bitter for an APA. More like an IPA.

Strange. I like very hoppy beers myself too and actually 3 IPAs kegged now that are in the 57-63 IBU range and they're definitely a lot more bitter than my Electric Pale Ale (also on tap).

What hops did you at a what times and what AA%?

Just drank a sample of this before dry hopping it tonight (was at 1.014 after 8 days) and damn is it tasty! Can't wait for the final product.

It actually tastes (and looks! -- and smells!) VERY similar to the 512 IPA from 512 Brewing, except very toned down hop-wise obviously. I imagine if we scale up the hops, you've got a pretty spot-on clone. (I was in Austin this weekend so I have a good recent experience to compare!)
