I think it will turn out pretty good, the closest beer I've had to it is "Chainbreaker" which is a kinda like a Belgian wit-IPA hybrid from Descurtes. It is really good though. You won't get any aroma from the Green Bullet @ 60 mins though. If you want some aroma, add an ounce of it to your dry hops.

A hop addition at 20 mins would add more hop flavor which I think will be lacking with your current hop schedule, it will also kick the IBUs up more.

8oz of Special B will provide a medium raisin note. Pretend Green bullet enhanced the raisin.

I like this logic; lie and say you wanted it that way! Good point though about the Bullet at 60.

Hops' flavor begins at 35ish and peaks at 20ish.

I like the look of it. Everybody goes nuts over Nelson Sauvin, but New Zealand has a lot of great hop varieties. If I were to make any changes, I would switch out the c120 (which will pretty much just echo the flavors of the special B) for some caramunich (a little bit more malty, sweet caramel flavor) but that's just personal preference.

Well, I went to the Northern Brewer and I thought their website said Pacifica but either I was mistaken or they were out so I picked up the new zealand hallertau just to stick with the theme. I'm going to be horrible to myself today and brew, while smoking a chicken on a 95* day.... This should be interesting.

Brewing is complete! Chicken is done! I'm way too hot and forgot to add the corn sugar but I guess I'll just wait until tomorrow and dump it in when fermentation starts.
Initial tasting: Pretty good. More to come
