Default I need your Simcoe recipes

I started brewing after Christmas last year, obviously missing out on most of the great hops. A few weeks ago I bought a pound of 2011 Simcoe pellets from ebay for $20 shipped, last week I bought a pound of 2012 leaf Simcoe. The only commercial example that I know that I have had is DFH60, I do love piney, dank hops like Columbus and Chinook. I need some recipes to use up all of this Simcoe. I do AG (5 and 10gal) and since I started kegging, I would love a smaller APA style beer (IPA's on tap equal a bad morning for me).
I also have the following hops on hand:
12oz Cascade 2011 organic (New Mexico, pretty amazing)
8oz Centennial pellets 2011
2oz Summit pellet 2011
2oz Palisade pellet 2011
4oz Nelson Sauvin pellet 2011
13oz Chinook pellet 2011
1lb Centennial leaf 2012
1lb Amarillo pellet 2012 (ships next week)
1lb Centennial pellet 2012 (ships next week)
1lb Citra pellet 2012 (ships next week)
1lb Nelson Sauvin pellet 2012 (ships next week)
Any help would be appreciated.

2012 Simcoe leaf and Centennial leaf was from freshhops.com, 2012 Citra, Nelson Sauvin, Centennial and Amarillo pellets were pre-order from Label Peelers, they will ship sometime next week.

I guarantee you I will make this and report back. That still leaves me with a pound and a half of Simcoe, anyone else?

*edit. Did you toast your own malt, like the OP?

Light to medium body, good head/lace, strong grapefruity-orange-mango aroma, chewy biscuity flavor up front, light to medium malt flavor, citrusy-pineapple-peach finish.

I did toast the malt only mine had already been mixed and milled. Other than that I followed the recipe as posted.
