I usually avoid posting recipes because I'm happy just doing my own thing. I tend use restraint with Crystal malts, rarely going as high as 10%. I like beers to be crisp. I'm going to, potentially, rock the boat a bit with this one. My plan is to make a pale ale with significant hop character and caramel character. My concern is that 15% crystal might mask the hop aroma and flavor a bit. I'll post my recipe and let me know what you think. Thanks!

6 lbs Pale 2 row US
2.5 lbs Ashburne Mild Malt
1.5 lbs Crystal 40

.25 oz Galaxy FWH 12.9 IBU
1 oz Citra 10 min 14.9 IBU
1 oz Galaxy 10 min 17 IBU
1 oz Citra 0 min
1 oz Galaxy 0 min
.5 oz Nelson Sauvin 0 min

US-05 with a starter
Mash at 153
60 min boil
44.9 IBU
1.049 anticipated OG

Once again, I appreciate your input!

Seems like a pretty straight forward malt bill, I don't think you'll have anything to worry about with the hop schedule you've selected.
