I figured out a hop schedule that I think is a good compromise to the continuous hopping technique but it was still a PITA. It's more of a staggered hop schedule I guess.
Here's the recipe:

og 1.070
IBU 60

12 lbs pale malt
6 oz amber
Strike 4.5 gallons 166F
Mash 151F 60 min

.25 oz Columbus 13.2% 60 min
.25 oz Columbus 13.2% 50 min
.25 oz Columbus 13.2% 40 min
.25 oz Columbus 13.2% 35 min
.33 oz Simcoe 11.9% 30 min
.33 oz Simcoe 11.9% 25 min
.33 oz Simcoe 11.9% 20 min
.5 oz Palisade 6.7% 15 min
.5 oz Palisade 6.7% 5 min

.75 oz Simcoe Dry hop 10 days
.75 oz Amarillo Dry hop 10 days
.75 oz Glacier Dry hop 10 days

Ringwood Ale @ 68F

I put each hop addition (all pellets) in a dixie cup labeled with the time. I don't have a watch though so I used my phone clock and it went like 7:22 add 50 min hops, 7:32 40 min, etc;

I pitched a 2 qt starter @ 10pm Monday and I had kraeusen by 6am and it's been kicking hard ever since.

Anyway, this better be good! BTW I've never use Palisade before, what's the deal with them?

Sure it will be great. I think the "continuous hopping" is more gimmick than anything. Your additions will give you a good effect.

Never used palisades.

My "continuous hopping" is my standing near the pot throwing in a pellet or two a second for 35 minutes. I really, really like the effect, though and I always do it with my DFH clone.

I never used palisades, so let us know how they are!

Update! 10 days in the primary and I took a hydro sample today...It's down to 1.012 from 1.070 Tastes pretty good, next to the real deal somewhat similar yet hard to judge at this point. The color is dead on though.
Here's mine on the left and the real deal on the right:
