I guess what I'm looking for is something similar to Green Flash West Coast IPA.  I like the grapefuity taste of that.  Mostly just want to try something different, but I don't want to use clashing flavors, or something that would be completely inappropriate.

there is a greenflash recipe in the latest issue of zymurgy that uses simcoe and columbus for most of the bittering and flavor additions until the very end.  It then calls for a large late addition of cascade and uses centennial, simcoe, columbus, amarillo and cascade to dry hop.  i have made this before and it is very good.  on my latest attempt of this beer i substituted the cascade additions with citra and it turned out awesome.  there is a huge grapefruit character that you may be looking for

Thanks for the citra tip. I also have made that recipe many time and it's great, making it Monday but looking to change it up a bit.  did you sub out all the cascade for citra? ounce for ounce?

when I subbed the citra for cascade i did it ounce for ounce.  the aroma was very big so i decided not to dry hop with it and it turned out just right for my taste.  AmandaK is right that the aroma subsides fairly quick. by the end of my dry hop the citra had struck a nice balance with everything else. this is my new favorite ipa to make.

Equipment and Software / anyone use a hop spider
« on: June 30, 2013, 06:21:38 AM »
I have been looking at a Hop Spider from stainlesssteelbrewing.com and was wondering if anyone has experience with these.  They seem to be exactly what I am looking for but I am not sure if I am missing something.  I have a 20 gal boil kettle and I am also wondering about what size I may need.  Any insight would help
