The grain bill looks good. Is there a specific reason for adding the Willamette? I only ask because it isn't really a flavor hop nor does it have high alpha. I would say keep it out and use it in a stout or a cream or so.

Other than the Wilamette, it looks like you are going for a nice citrusy IPA. Personally I'd sub out the Wilamette for more cascade (similar AA to Wilamette). Any plans to dryhop as well?

Maybe go for a first wort hopping with the columbus, to create a smooth bitterness and a little flavor. Then, I would drop the willamette and add citra or centennial. Also, maybe just add that mix of hops at 15, 10, 5, and 0 mins left in the boil. The Pacman yeast is going to leave that beer pretty dry. It chews through EVERYTHING!

Without question, the greatest invention in the history of mankind is beer. Oh, I grant you that the wheel was also a fine invention, but the wheel does not go nearly as well with pizza.

I think using the Willamette is creative. It certainly wont overpower the other hops.

The hops are a personal preference but I would start hop bursting at 15 minutes left. I don't think you get much out of a 30-40 minute if your goal is to extract flavor

Looks kinda like dfh 90 min but different hop combo. I agree with dropping the willamette. Sounds good though!

What's with the Willamette hate?

Personally fond of a Cascade, Willamette blend and have used it in many different styles.

I'm a fan of Willamette in my citrus hop blends too. It gives a nice funk note that i dig.
