I don't know, but in my personal opinion, Munich and Vienna seem a bit out of place in an *Irish* Red. Maybe Victory or Biscuit instead?
Also, if you're sticking to style, I don't think Irish ales are supposed to have too much in the way of hop flavor and aroma which is where you seem to have the bulk of your hopping going on.
I could be wrong, and you could be doing your own thing knowing full well what the style guidelines are.

Your probably right in that the late hop additions are a bit out of style, but I do like hoppy beers . Maybe I should tone it down a little...

My apologies. I have started a thread over there. Could a moderator delete this thread?
