I've brewed this beer on three separate occasions last year. I've experimented with different yeast strains and found that WLP001 works the best, Safeale05 comes in a close second. I've had a number of people messaging me about this recipe so I thought I'd share it with you all. This beer is slightly more bitter than the original, but can be toned up or down to your preference. I've seen the AA% in Citra hops shift drastically by brand, in this recipe I use Citra rated @ 10% Alpha Acid.

WLP001 or Safeale05 yeast. Primary fermentation usually lasts 10 days or until FG is 1.011. Transfer to Secondary and Dry-hop each 5 gallons with 2oz of Citra hops. Bottle after 10-14 days in the Secondary.
I don't have any pictures of this beer right now, I drank the last one 5 months ago. I have a 1lb of Citra in the freezer so I'll definitely be brewing this one again soon. Hopefully I'll have a picture up sometime before June.
