Default Tarragon RyePA

Hi all! After being the most patient woman on the planet, SWMBO asked me if I could brew something up for her. I, being both the gentleman and the guy who's looking for any excuse to brew, am more than willing to oblige That said, she really loves the spice tarragon so I thought I would try to incorporate that in to a brew. Soooooo, here is a recipe for a Tarragon RyePA. I wanted to give it a nice red color (seems to fit with rye) - so that's why I included carared. I also wanted some nice citrusy hops to balance out the earthiness of the tarragon, if anybody is wondering about the hops. I would love to use citra, but I'm not counting on being able to find any. My LHBS has been out of stock for months.

So, if anybody has any comments or criticisms I would greatly appreciate it! I'm still fairly new to recipe creation, so if it looks like I'm doing something stupid please let me know

Sorry to see no responses here. Going through my spice cabinet I took a whiff of the Tarragon and thought that'd be a great spice to use in a brew. Ginger is also on my short list.
