I'm brewing this today (Friday).

Pale LME: 3.25lbs
Amber LME: 3lbs
Corn Sugar: 1lb

[EDIT: Changed the hop Amounts]
Boil: 60min
Saaz: .88oz (25 grams)
Hallertaur: .88oz (25g)
Tettanger: .88oz (25g)

Flavor: last 10min
Saaz: .35oz (10g)
Hallertaur: .35oz (10g)
Tettanger: .53oz (15g)

Aroma: Last 2 min/steep
Saaz: .35oz (10g)
Hallertaur: .35oz (10g)
Tettanger: .35oz (10g)

Yeast: Danstar Nottingham Ale (low esters/clean ale yeast)

Hops may be slighty different amounts. I have 45g each of Saaz and Hallertauer and 50g of Tettenger. I basically want to use half of each type in the boil, 1/4 of each in the last 10 and 1/4 of each in the last 2 minutes. I might be off a bit with the math above.

I'm wondering what beer style this might be considered? I'll probably bottle with about a 2.5-3.0 CO2 level.

[EDIT: Corrected new IBU (Promash) Had wrong wort size set]
According to Promash this has 46.3 IBU
And an SRM of about 7.6

Est OG of 1.055 and Est FG of 1.010 (5.93%a/v)

OG ended up being 1.053
Pretty hoppy. Nice wort flavor. I think I'm really going to Like this one.

Seems to me that this is basically a IPA but with German/Czeck hops.

Still don't know what style that makes it. Maybe a "British Columbian Pale Ale".

Looks like it falls between a strong Pale Ale and a Light IPA...

Dennys SPLIPA?

When I first looked at the recipe I thought bitter or ESB, but the hops are really strange in that.

If you changed the yeast to the san fran lager it would have made a pilsner like brew (with ale yeast) in the form of a nice california common.

The nottingham yeast is typically pretty clean, so I agree that it will come out to be pretty close to an English IPA style, with wierd hops. Not that that's bad.

Or you could leave out the czech hops and call it a GPA (german pale ale).
With a G.P.A. of 5.93 you could get in any college that you want.
