If you like that recipe now, rebrew it with crystal 10 and mash super low.
Dry crisp fruity IPAs never last more than 2-3 weeks at my place
Haha yes, crystal 40. It's slightly out of style on purpose

If I redo this it may just be Marris Otter with galaxy/citra

I'm really enjoying 1272 right now for all my IPAs, pale ales, etc. Fruitiness is pretty mild fermented in the mid 60's, but still detectable.

1272 - american ale II (gives some nice fruit)
1968 - london ESB - last time i used this, it was sexy
as per wyeasts website about 1968

A very good cask conditioned ale strain, this extremely flocculant yeast produces distinctly malty beers. Attenuation levels are typically less than most other yeast strains which results in a slightly sweeter finish. Ales produced with this strain tend to be fruity, increasingly so with higher fermentation temperatures of 70-74F (21-23 C). A thorough diacetyl rest is recommended after fermentation is complete. Bright beers are easily achieved within days without any filtration.
