That's kinda what I'm going for. Plus, I want a real hit of aroma to the nose. I may decide to dry hop with some Cascade instead.

BTW, I tried to click your link to the 'Cool Shirts' and it gave me a 'Product Not Found' page.

There is an "e" missing from "home" in the website address. That will fix it up.

Along the lines of your option of using Cascade to dry hop: I vote you leave as is, but ALSO add the Cascade (about 1.5 oz) in for dry hop along with the Willamette!!
