ok - so given what I'm hearing...this will be the next-next brew, so i can always change, but I'm thinking:

1.065/75 ibus

70% 2 row
25% MO
5% C-15L
mash @ 150-152df

Warrior for bittering
2oz each Galaxy and Mosaic @ 20min
2oz each Galaxy, Mosaic & CTZ @ 0 - whirlpool at 180df for 30 min

2oz each Galaxy, Mosaic and CTZ dryhop 10 days

turned out great - very oily, resinous and tropical fruity with some faint citrus.  I think the Galaxy is a bit overpowering and while I think its a great hop, I think i am going to not use it as heavy handed going forward. Served at a festival and some folks said they preferred it over my regular house IPA, though I did not.

Am planning on doing an amber ale next weekend with the following:

12 Gal
1.056 OG
40IBUs
60% Rahr 2 row
30% Weyermann Munich I
10% English med Crystal
**possibly a few ounces of pale chocolate to get the SRM ~11-12

60 min Magnum for bittering
10 min 2oz Cascade, 2oz Galaxy
0 min  3oz Cascade 2oz Galaxy

Optional dryhop - dependent on aroma post fermentation - 2oz Cascade/1oz Galaxy

or maybe I use Citra instead of Cascade...
