A friend and I made this recipe last month (all-grain) and just cracked opened some bottles this week. Overall a very good beer and one I will make again. I really liked how it finished with a slight grain flavor. What grain is causing that flavor? I have tried two IPA's before and they had that same finishing grain flavor and I love it. Please help me out if you can. Thanks.

I guess you could be tasting the Munich malt. Could be the earthiness of the Willamettes in the background? That's my favorite part of this beer.

Has anyone ever used WLP026 on this or any American IPA? I'm thinking about using the yeast cake from my last batch for this recipe. Style charts on the white labs site give it the high rating for the style.

I brewed this beer about a month ago and enjoying the first pint right now.

I'll be brewing this again soon - thanks for the recipe!

Made a batch with a friend for his baby shower. We killed the keg and everyone loved it. We brewed it two months before the party so I think we should have pushed the dry hop time back a couple weeks but besides that it was nice and floral and citrusy but not overly bitter. I'd make this again for sure, nice job on the recipe. Might steal your idea of skipping the initial bittering addition.

Brewed this as my first all grain beer. Hit the gravity pretty closely and it was definitely a learning experience. With all the hops that was added I expected it to be a little hoppier. Im very happy with how it came out, the keg is about half gone already. Ill be making this recipe again.

I brewed this BIAB and it came out perfect. I am 1/2 way through the batch and it's the best beer I've ever brewed. It's really close to perfect and as far as APA I'm not even going to look for another to brew for a while. Great hop flavor without being too bitter or bomb-like. Big flavor in balance.

Brewed this one today from the original recipe. Used 1056 yeast. Gravity came in a little lower @ 1.056 but from the comments i should probably expect good things in the end.
