Our cat has started biting my ankles recently, so this brew will be dubbed Ankle-biter IPA.
I approve of all those modifications. Should be good!

Brewed this today. Hbs didn't have Nelson so I subbed bravo. Also couldn't get the Bedford yeast so used London ale yeast instead. Brewed this for a Memorial Day BBQ for work, with the combo of hops I think it will be awesome. Just curious of how the color and clarity will turn out because of my greatness I forgot to turn on the water for my chiller until about half way through. The fermenter has a crazy cold break seperation going on from half the wort bring chilled a lot and half not. Sounds like a great brew though!

I shot high on the priming sugar to turn the beer around quickly for the contest btw.

Just wanted to report back on this. Cracked my first bottle from this batch over the weekend. 3 weeks in the bottle and it was delicious! Might be my favorite beer I've brewed so far.

Wish I had tried one earlier. Thanks for the great recipe!

Apparently others agreed. Entered this beer in my first comp and it was selected for the final round (top 30 out of 100+). Thanks again for the recipe. You can bring any beer to the final round, but this one's on my short list to brew again for it.

Picked up the score sheets today, not a BJCP event, but scored a 33/50. Comments: "Slightly overcarbonated for the style, cloudy, good hop aroma, grassy and dank. No off flavors."

Sounds like you brewed it well. May need a longer cold crash. I love having a beer like this around because you can always have a couple to get your hop fix and wake up the next day feeling solid.

Doing this with citra instead of NS, as I couldn't find any. Every thing else is the same.
