I like it. Nothing too crazy. Looks very balanced, dark and excellent. Hard to mess something up with Columbus, Centennial and Cascade!

I've since done it with a citra dry hop (2 oz to replace the centennial/cascade)...i think that keg went even faster.

I dry hopped 7 days w/Citra & bottled it last weekend. Finished at 1.015. I drank a hydrometer cylinder full. It was already amazing. I'm probably gonna let it condition another week before I .......wait just now opened one. Needs another week but I can tell it's gonna be good. Kinda reminds me of a Founders porter right now.
Thanks again.

let me know how it goes...to match my current style of brewing i might combine the 15 and 10 min additions to a single 10 min and the 5 and 0 to a single flameout and do a 30 min whirlpool before chilling.

Will do, atom. I had to tweak the initial bittering hop addition to get it to ~65 IBU's but I'm keeping the 15, 10, 5, and 0 additions. Not a whole lot of variance there since they're all late additions.
