I count 22.5oz of hops!!!! My god, that should be an incredibly pugant and flavorful beer, although I'm glad to not be the one paying for all those hops.

My only question is why there are no full boil hops. I suppose using that large of an amount of hops, and all as mid-late additions, would still add more than enough bitterness and adding any significant amount early on would just make the IBU's insane. At this point it almost seems to me, like a fruit beer. You don't want any cloying bitterness getting in the way of the, in this case intense citrus, fruit flavor.

Awesome idea. I'd love to try it but would never brew it because of the $$$.

So are you actually going to brew this, or are you just rubbing in our faces the fact that you're sitting on nearly a pound of Citra, while the rest of us have none?

Overkill, wasted hops.

Looks complicated with so many additions. Could probably go for some 60 minute hops to to reduce the total amount of hops used. I don't really see the point in having six hop additions from 25 min.
Late hops are great, but they have worked best for me at the 5 - 0 minute range. YMMV

I don't see how you're going to get any wort in the carboy, it's going to be a kettle full of liquid expanded hops.

23+ lbs of grain, plus 6 of DME and you are shooting for 1.077? That seems VERY low. You should easily get 1.100+! All those hops sound good but I have to agree that it would be overkill. The trub would be crazy

Yes sir! I wiped out the LHBS of their very last bit of citra yesterday. Believe me, I had a little spring in my step on the way out the door. It felt like I had jus robbed a bank.

I was planning on using my hop bag and strangling the wort out of it after I chill. I was thinking I would add the 2 minute and flameout additons outside of the bag to really maximize the contact. I'm still planning on a gratuitous amount of trub but I think the hop bag will hold onto the majority of it.
