Digging the hip hop references in your recipes. This is on my list, but I plan to sub Centennial with Galena because I have a few pounds that need to be used.

Hi Remmy,

That beer sounds delicious...I have loads of Columbus and Centennial on hand so I think I might give this a whirl...maybe throw in some Nelson Sauvin as well. I dont have Marris Otter on hand but I have some Bairds Golden Promise which I may be able to use. I notice the beer calls for only late hop editions...is there still some bitterness in the beer to help balance it out? The colour of the beer looks great, exactly what I am after, also glad to see you used a dry yeast and got great results :D

Just brewed this weekend, Upped the grain to account for my crappy efficiency. I got 1.052 into the fermenter, also added 3 oz of amarillo into the mix. excited to see the results!

Gonna brew this Sunday instead (waiting to brew your nelson double ipa when the hops are easier to get). Looks good.

I would not add the munich - it'll darken the beer. This is a very crisp and light IPA. I say go with everything else you have there minus the munich. Besides, I think the Maris Otter gives this beer the perfect amount of malt punch it needs.
Cool, thanks!

Ordering hops now.... need this, lots of this.
Do it! I'm almost a week into fermentation and I literally just opened my cool brewing bag to check on it and it smells really awesome. Once I get an empty keg I will post how it turned out!

Mine didn't turn out as pretty... I did a 1 gallon, with slightly different grain bill as I was hoping to get this over 6% alcohol.
1.5 lb Maris Otter Pale (60%) / 1 lb Pale 2-Row (40%)

Somehow I dramatically overshot my efficiency and it ended up at 8% when it was all said and done.

Flavour wise, this beer grows on me as I drink it, but there is something about the hops which I can't put my finger on that leaves me wanting more. Part of me is thinking a more aroma based dry hop at the end would've rounded this out nicer, but also take this with a grain of salt knowing everything mentioned above about the malt factors.

Mine came out on the darker side (LME probably got a bit caramelized, shoulda added it later), but it tastes great. I undershot the efficiency a bit so it's only like 4.3%, which is a-OK for me. A bit more bitterness and less juiciness than I prefer, but still very tasty.
