0m - 48g Motueka, 28g Galaxy, 28g Pacific Jade

Dry hops - 28g Galaxy & 28g Pacific Jade 10 days in, racked to secondary 6 days later

Brett B Trois added 24 days in. 2 cut up limes added 50 days in. Debacle ongoing. Sample tasted decent on 7/28.

I want this to be one of my flagship beers & I was putting up a blog post for it tonight, so I thought its progression should be documented.
