You'll like these hops, I think. I did virtually the same recipe, same yeast and hop schedule but I didn't have a 20 minute addition. Also, I used a little honey malt instead of Vienna. Got a huge tropical fruit, almost pineapple, aroma and flavor when young and it's aging very nicely in the keg. Cheers!
