7.4% and nice foamy head



Great lacing



Crystal clear

Flavor very citrusy with no bitter finish whatsoever. Definitely a keeper.

Looks great man !   I use the the 2 row/Munich/Victory/Wheat grist for most of my APAs and AIPAs.  If I use any crystal at all, it's 8 oz or less ( just preference).  Well done !

Thankyou. I really like this grain bill for both my APAs and IPAs. Only difference is I use a pound less 2 row for my APAs.

Yep.  It's a malt base with a lot of character without getting in the way of my dry hops (I like a lot of them for IPA).

Nice. Simcoe and Amarillo make for a great combo. Too bad Amarillo is so damn hard to get these days. Simcoe and Chinook is nice too.
