Tasting Notes: Very good!

Here is a IPA recipe I made recently, and it turned out very good.
It is on the low end of the guidelines as far as IBU, color and ABV which makes it easy to drink. But, is loaded with flavor.
It uses only "EL Dorado" hops...5 oz. of them! I used the hop bursting technique to keep the IBUs low and the flavor high. El dorado hops are very complex in flavor, as I am picking up mixed fruit flavors but none seem to dominate. I pick up hints of citrus and melon....something of a "not quite ripe cantaloupe" flavor, but it is fleeting.
