So . . . you're saying I should have asked about this before I went shopping, then?

I just started drinking this, I don't think there's much i'm going to change next time around other than playing with different dryhops - it's pretty fantastic. 5.5gal batch:

14# 2-row
1# Crystal 60
1# Vienna
.25# Acidulated (for my water profile)

1oz Chinook FWH
1oz Centennial 15
1oz Centennial 10
1oz Centennial 5
1oz Centennial 0

1oz Motueka Dry
1oz Centennial Dry
1oz Cascade Dry

I've done this as all Centennial before, it was really good too but I wanted to up the IBU's this time around. I think I hit it pretty spot on for what I was looking for.

Man I love me some Centennial hops. I have a toned down version of this in a Pale Ale and love that too.

I wanted to update on this, and I'll do a proper update to the OP when I get my notes straight. This came out very nice as written. Good, sharp bitterness, good aroma (though somehow not as much as I expected, or maybe just not what I'm used to as I've never really used Centennial out front like this) and nice even malt body. Not sweet, not too big, really just right. I think this base will be a keeper on which to vary the late hops and dry hops - I can see it going great with some Cascade/Citra/Amarillo action. I may pull back on the Cara-pils just to see if it loses (or gains) from that.
