2 oz (56.8 g) | Williamette hops (boiling): 10 HBU
0.5 oz (14.2 g) | Cascade hops (boiling): 2.5 HBU
1 oz (28.4 g) | Mt. Hood hops (aroma)
1 tsp (4 g) | ground cinnamon
1 tsp (4 g) | vanilla bean, chopped
0.5 tsp (2 g) | freshly ground nutmeg

0.5 tsp (2 g) | ground dried ginger

Category 23. Speciality. It's a spiced pumpkin beer. It won't fit any other category. Call it what you want though, as long as it's not for a competition.

Thanks but I am trying to figure out the Base Style, not the category that the finished beer fits into.

American Amber possibly?
