I should correct myself lol..... It's what I consider a balanced IPA. It's no doubt, very hop forward. It's just rounded out well so it's got big hop flavor but not overly bitter. As well it doesn't taste as sweet as say a DFH 90.

How'd it turn out so far?

I tried to make this recipe but my LBHS didn't have any of the right hops, haha. So I did the same grain bill and then did:

1 oz warrior (13.7%) @ 60 mins
2 oz zythos (10.6%) @ 30 mins
2 oz Cascade (6.2%) @ 15 mins
1 oz Cascade (6.2%) @ 10 mins
1 oz Cascade (6.2%) @ 5 mins

Ordered some Citra leaf hops online, and thinking about dry hopping for around 10 days with 3-4 oz. Maybe adding an oz every 3 days for 12 days. Thoughts? What am I going to end up with here?

Great!! Really big hop aroma that smells of grapefruit and tropical fruit. Tastes like grapefruit upfront then settles to a mango- pineapple. Yours will be a bit different but it looks good. I'd just use 3oz all at once and let it dry hop for 10 days. It reminds me a lot of Sierra Nevada Torpedo. Let me know how it turns out.

Awesome, I love pretty much anything Sierra does, but especially that Torpedo. I'll let you know how this one ends up turning out. I'm overly excited about this one...

Just racked onto 3 oz of citra leaf last night. Gravity is down now to about 1.022 or so, I'd like it get it down a little further but I didn't use a starter so I am pleased it is that low. It tastes incredible, kinda like a mix between Torpedo and Hopslam.

FYI: I took some beer out after taking these pictures, so no need to worry about this exploding on me!

Thanks again for the recipe, I'll let you know how it ends up!

What yeast are you using? I just pitch 2 US 05 packets so I don't use a starter. Glad all is well so far though. I just started dry hopping another batch of this 2 days ago actually. Nice thing about this one is it doesn't really need much to mature, once the bottles are carbed drink away it's good fresh. Excited to hear your results, enjoy!!!
