Bottled last Tuesday. Tried one on Saturday to show a friend what it tasted like, he helped me make it. It was copper, reminded me a lot of a tamer Surly Furious. Granted, I toured surly earlier in the day and was very inebriated at this point. Either way, going to let it properly condition and enjoy.

I used the extra .3 of Chinook at FWH as I like what FWH do but, I've not done any pale ales with Chinook so I'm really looking forward to this.

this finished a few points high at 1.053 (low water volume into fermenter, didn't care to top off).



It is excellent though!

Just dry hopped mine yesterday.....will be kegged this weekend or shortly after.
Nice color on yours. Mine seems to be a tad lighter but until I get it into a glass, it's hard to tell. Nice, thick foamy head too!

I thought it would be lighter but you're right, you never know until it's in the glass. I love dry hopping with citra.

I dry hopped in the primary as I almost always do. I rarely use a secondary these days.
