Not sure where to categorize it has it's too strong and light for an american pale ale, but whatever i'm calling it that.

This was quite a left fielder for my girlfriend and I, and is the first recipe I've decided to post here since it was our original idea and it came out quite well. Will be keeping it on tap, however will be very hard to reproduce for the following reasons:

All hops added except the columbus were hop pellets that were left over that had been ziplocked and left in a freezer. We were also pretty much flat broke when we noticed our beer supply was running low so we didn't want it to run dry!

Our initial recipe lacked any specialty malts and columbus but I felt it wouldn't be a good beer unless we added something to it. Originally was to be brewed with some crystal 60L, but when we went to go buy it we noticed some cherrywood smoked malt sitting on the bottom tub of our local home brew shop, Hoptech in dublin.

So we said, hey, why not, and replaced the 60l with the smoked malt.

Results were fantastic.

Initial gravity was 1.065, which was higher than anticipated, and safale dropped it to 1.002, which was odd but several folks have reported abnormally high attenuation. If anything, the beer is too dry but it makes it a great summer beer!
