I brewed this up a few weeks ago, and it is everything that I look for in an IPA - bold and hop forward with plenty of citrus and tropical fruit hop aromas. A clean tasting American IPA with a wonderful hop character.

I would up the hops, be careful of the citra @ 30min. Maybe up the Amarillo and drop the citra down to 10-15 min. I would also dry hop all additions for 5-7 days.
