Hi All - I posted this in the wrong subcategory yesterday, sorry for the double post.

I'm looking for some feedback on my "clean-out-the-freezer" winter IPA. I'm using all my open hop packets from the past year for bittering - AAs for each hop listed below have been adjusted for age by BeerSmith. For flavor and aroma I'm going to buy some fresh Willamette & Cascade.

The main thing I'm debating right now is whether the Falconers Flight & Warrior additions at 45 and 30 are worth it. They still smell okay and I liked them in a Rye IPA earlier this year, but it might be overkill or muddy up the late Willamette/Cascade additions.

Appreciate any thoughts on the grain bill and predicted balance, too.

Thanks for feedback. Cheers!

I wouldn't use the warrior late, so I'd probably move it to the bittering and move the citra to later in the boil. Citra will go nicely with any of the hops, but warrior doesn't do much for me in flavor.

I've only used Falconer's Flight once, but I think it would work nice with willamette/cascade if I remember correctly.
