I've used the same grain bill with different hops. Recently I used .375 oz of Columbus for 60 and 1 oz cascades fwh, .5 oz Columbus for 20 and a different yeast- bry 97. I will update with pics and tasting notes after kegging. It's fermenting right now as I brewed it feb 15.

Update:
Changed the dry hop with 1 oz Mosaic hops for 7 days. Gravity was 1.012. I'm expecting it to finish 1.010 or just a bit lower.
Will keg on March 8.
Sample tastes different from anything I've tasted. Floral, some citrus so far. Nothing like what I've read about blueberries or bubble gum. There was a taste in there somewhere that I quite haven't figured out yet but time will reveal it.

Update:
Been kegged since 3-8 and there's a lot going on with this hop. Gonna let this sit another week before the hops start shining more. Tons of citrus notes and the aroma is upfront and personal to say the least. I have to let it sit a bit longer for it to "mature". I think I've pulled 6 pints off so far. The first few were grassy. The last 4 or so I waited and the grassy flavor is subsiding. Patience is the key on this one!
