I would use the GP in place of the 2 row and cut the amount of crystal malt in half. Just me.
On Tap/Bottled: Hazy IPA, BraunBier, Berry Belgian Cider, Pilsner, Doppelbraun                

Fermenting:
Up Next: Red Rye Ale, Black Lager

I would think that carapils is doing nothing for you, I would drop it.  What is the batch size?  Honey malt is also strong stuff, maybe a bit less of that.
Risk of failure should be no deterrent to trying.

I'd brew it, all looks fine to me. I'd mash it at 49 for 90 and let it rip.

I would guess that to be in the realm of Barleywine.  If I what you did for bitterness but that recipe looks malty and delicious.
