It looks good to me. I really like simcoe hops, so I think it looks really tasty. I like the combo of amarillo/simcoe better, if you have amarillo, but if not, the cascade will work just fine.

I'm a fan of the fruitiness of Cascades. I just got a shipment of Amarillos, but I;m saving them for batches 1 and 2 of the DFH clone :)
