This is just a classic example of a California Common.
The Use of Northern Brewer Hops is showcased in this brew.
The only thing wrong with this recipe is that it goes 1 IBU over the Limit according to the BJCP.

It seems I missed my mark, it came out to an OG 1.050 instead of 1.052.
Slight drop in brewhouse efficiency, nothing too drastic.

The hydrometer sample tasted good, I got my fermentation room down to 63° f so Fermentation temp should stabilize around 65° f or there about.

Will update later.
