Brew day on this went smooth. The big hop aroma coming from this smells euphoric. Ive already got everything to repeat the batch as soon as I get an open carboy. I also made 2 small adjustments to the original recipe but I couldnt edit the post. I used a grain bill of 18# 2Row, 2# C60, .5# Carapils, .5# White wheat. The other change was I added another oz of each Amarillo and Citra at flameout. Just added the dryhop addition 2 days ago. Heres some pics....

I just bottled 2 of the 6 gallons(kegging the other 4 for brewfest) and wow. This is by far the best beer I've made. The sample tasted great; instant grapefruit and mango with subtle pineapple tones coming through. Big hoppy aroma that smells of blood orange and tropical fruit. I will be brewing this again in 2 weeks. I've found my house IPA!!! I advise anyone to give this recipe a go, you will be happy you did!

Love the Citra + Amarillo combo, but this has too much crystal for me with quite the high mash temp.
What was your OG/FG?

1.094 and 1.014. I myself expected more maltiness from the mash temp but it's really quite balanced. You can always cut down the crystal to your preference as well.

See, I find beauty in "un-balance" with IPAs/IIPAs. Hate the term balance for those styles. It's kind of like saying I want "balanced" buffalo wings instead of spicy buffalo wings. Preference I guess.

Good job on the attenuation. I didn't see what yeast you used here though.
