Drinking a pale ale hopped with equal parts Nelson and Galaxy. Very nice fruity aroma and unique taste from the Nelson hops. Think the citra would be pretty similar to the galaxy with the tropical fruit taste and aromas. Will brew this one again.

My last APA I brewed I adjusted my hop schedule to later in the boil. Basically adding more hops later to get the desired IBU's and at the same time increasing aroma and flavor. That thing smelled awesome during active fermentation. I boiled with cascade and citra. It will be dry hopped with I am planning on dry hopping with 1oz simcoe and probably 1/2oz cascade and 1/2 citra.

Here was my schedule for that brew.

boil 15 mins 1.0 Cascade pellet
boil 15 mins 0.5 Citra pellet
boil 5 mins 1.0 Cascade pellet
boil 5 mins 0.25 Cascade pellet
boil 5 mins 0.6 Citra pellet

dry hop 5 days 0.5 Cascade leaf
dry hop 5 days 1.0 Simcoe pellet

Nope. That schedule and the alphas in the hops I used calculate out at 41.5 on hopville.

This is a quote from this link/article as already posted. http://www.mrmalty.com/late_hopping.php

Lots of Late Hops = Lots of Flavor and Aroma

It seems really simple when you think about it: Add more late hops and get more flavor and aroma. Most of us, when we started brewing, were told that early hop additions are for bittering only and late hop additions are for flavor and aroma only. What we were not told is that shifting the bittering load to late in the boil can still provide substantial bittering in addition to a huge hop flavor and aroma. Done right, it can produce some really spectacular results
