named it appropriately "snow day IPA").
I like the name!
I'm getting a big family request for a "Citrus/Orange Wheat". I wanted to introduce a citrus note from the hops with a little orange zest/coriander at end of boil. I want the hops to shine through, as an introduction to my "Blue Moon" drinkers. They always associate hops with bitter.

I too am getting a requests for a orange wheat type homebrew. Though, with the summer coming up, I can't really complain. Anyone post a good new recipe?

Taking a note from my IIPA I was thinking of trying a wheat with similar properties as your requests. I would hop it up with chinook, Amarillo and Cascade just in lower amounts, probably around 20-30ibus hop bursted. My IIPA is like one giant citrus bomb at 10.6%abv. Really smooth and tasty. Then I'll use my basement wheat grain bill as my base. Perhaps some orange peel and coriander to help round out the style and go with a good clean yeast to let the hops and wheat shine through.

Citra is bomb! I do a SMaSH with citra and it's absolutely delish! Extremely bold citrus flavor..but not overwhelming.

Thanks for all the suggestions! Im debating between the Citra or Pacifica to combine with the Cascade as a burst at the end.
