Well, when you use Munton's yeast and a different hop, then you end up with an interesting different beer. It's not BCB Haus Ale, albeit it may turn out to be a good one.

Is it supposed to taste like grapefruit juice?
I never had a pale ale and I have been tasting the exact recipe.

It taste like grapefruit juice. I'm thinking because of the cascade hops and 2 ounces of it.

Please tell me is it supposed to taste like this?

Maybe my efficiency is off and all I am tasting is hops.

Will it mellow out over time?
Thanks for the replys in advance.

No, it is not supposed to taste like grapefruit juice, though that is a tasty attribute of some pale ales.

BCB Haus is supposed to be lightly hopped, malty/bready, and easy to drink for the non-craft beer drinker.

I recommend patience at this point. Also, what was the AA% of the Cascade hops you used?

Don't get me wrong I still like it!
They were pelet hops.
I did not filter them when transferring them to fermenter.
But I did filter them while kegging.

Thanks for the reply Ed.

Actually SWMBO likes this the way it is now !

Does not want me to change a thing!

Cascades do have a nice refreshing citrus aroma and taste. If your not used to drinking American Pale Ales I can see how it might be "grapefruit like" to you. I just sampled mine and it does have a nice light taste of citrus due to these hops but is what I expected. Nowhere near like drinking grapefruit juice though. It should mellow out as it is still green. I would agree its lightly hopped for my taste but would be considered a hoppy beer to many of my friends and family who usually drink American light lager (BMC).

Although I think the grapefruityness will probably blend better into the beer with age, one thing to consider when using really citrusy hops like Cascade is the AAU.

Homebrewtalkers will refer to bitterness as IBU (I think this beer rings in at 39 IBU). If you have a means to calculate ibu use it, but if not you can use simple aau and approximate bitterness in a recipe with varying crops of your hops.

But I bet your 50 ibu beer is tasty too!
