Last time, I finished with a ton of late Sorachi Ace additions, resulting in a nice grapefruit flavor---but this quickly turned a touch too pithy after a month in bottle. So I'm going back to Cascade, partly because I have 2 lbs of it in inventory. I also replaced the special B with Crystal 40 to lighten up the color a bit, and I added another pound of Victory malt in hopes of getting some more toasty notes. I tried S-04 this time around.

Had a few of the new batch. I was worried because it finished so freakin' high...like 1.018...but I'll be damned if it's not one of my best. The return to cascade is just awesome...and the high proportion of victory is perfect (that's probably why the fg was so high, tho). I recently got some crystal 10L, I'll probably try that next time, to lighten it up. But the victory malt, there's nothing else like it.

Great American Pale Ale. Hop aroma and bitterness were awesome with a great malt backbone...the Victory malt really shines through and complements the hoppiness.
