Additional Yeast or Yeast Starter: n/a

Original Gravity: 1.067

IBU: 26.4   
Boiling Time (Minutes): 60   
Color: 6.6   
Primary Fermentation (# of Days & Temp): 14 ~66*   
Secondary Fermentation (# of Days & Temp): Dryhopped @ day 5   
Tasting Notes: Nice hoppy APA. Was going for a higher alcohol APA with a strong hoppy aroma.   

ABV: 7.8%

Ingredients:
------------
Amt Name Type # %/IBU
5 lbs 8.0 oz Pale Malt (2 Row) US (2.0 SRM) Grain 2 73.3 %
1 lbs 8.0 oz Vienna Malt (3.5 SRM) Grain 3 20.0 %
8.0 oz Caramel/Crystal Malt - 20L (20.0 SRM) Grain 4 6.7 %

0.50 oz Cascade [5.50 %] - Boil 60.0 min Hop 5 16.2 IBUs
0.50 oz Goldings, East Kent [5.00 %] - Boil 15.0 Hop 7 7.3 IBUs
0.50 oz Goldings, East Kent [5.00 %] - Boil 5.0 Hop 8 2.9 IBUs
0.50 oz Cascade [5.50 %] - Dry Hop 9.0 Days Hop 10 0.0 IBUs
0.50 tsp Irish Moss (Boil 15.0 mins) Fining 6 -

1.0 pkg Nottingham (Danstar #-) [23.66 ml] Yeast 9 -

Mashed at 150 for 75 minutes, mash out at 170 for 10 minutes.

Fermented in Mr. Beer fermentor for 5 days, then dry hopped with Cascade.
Waited 6 days, then did a cold crash for 3 days. Bottled two weeks after brew day.
I tried one a week after bottle date and it was very good. Fellow homebrewer was over and he enjoyed it as well. Now, its been bottled 4 weeks and is even better!
It has a nice fruity, hoppy aroma thanks to the cascade and late EKGs.
Tasted very nice, balanced, ending with a nice mellow malty splash, not too sweet.
The alcohol was noticeable at 7.8% with the earlier bottles, but now it has mellowed out and balances out nicely.

One extra note: I did not design this with any particular beer in mind and only found out after the fact that this beer is quite similar to EdWort's Haus Pale Ale.

I guess a picture is worth a thousand words...

I'm down to two 16oz flip-tops left. Looks like I'm going to have to brew this one again soon...
