Need some extra beer line to get to your keg. Been saying 5 O'Clock Somewhere all day. I'll have one of those.

Pics of recent brews?

BLUF: This British Golden Ale is pretty good.

Big mouthfeel for a 1051 beer. Nice mix of fruity esters and moderate citrus from the hops.

This is my first British Golden Ale. Probably off style; fruity from using Pacific Ale yeast. Slight nuttiness from 100% Maris Otter grain bill. I bittered with Warrior to 25 IBU and used Amarillo at 5 and 0 minutes.

Edit: retracted comment about nuttiness being out of style. BJCP says bready and biscuity is common. I am probably just using the wrong descriptor for what I taste.

What did you land on for a recipe?  Also, did you fine that because it is pretty darn clear?
Risk of failure should be no deterrent to trying.

Fined with gelatin.

For 3G at 1051 OG:
100% MO
25 IBU Warrior at 60
0.2 oz Amarillo @ 5 (2.6 IBU)
0.4 oz Amarillo @ 0
WLP041 Pacific Ale
Yellow balanced water

This beer was probably at the low end of "Hop flavor was moderate to moderate high" from BJCP guidelines. I think you could double the hops, maybe more, and still be in style.

On the clarity: I didn't cold crash. I added the gelatin to the bottom of the keg.l and transfered the beer which was at 64F. I wondered if the gelatin would still work. I guess it did.

That's my current favorite glass.  YHB makes better beer but I love the VW bus logo.

The Citra-ho 7, fruit bomb DIPA
This is my first time using citra.  I'm extremely happy with the clarity on this one.  Surprisingly the melon flavor is much stronger than I had expected.

Yeah, looks great. I get a lot of mango out of Citra, and I love the Idaho 7. Is it lost against the Citra (with Citra being strong) ?

It is surprisingly balanced.  It also has galaxy and ctz.  The Idaho 7 is stronger in aroma, but it finishes citra.  I am assuming it is the citra.  There is 40 IBUs of ctz then whirlpool 2oz Idaho. 1oz citra, 1oz galaxy  Dry hopped with 1oz Idaho 7 , 1 oz citra

Looks awesome, Dan. I have a 2206 Dunkel (double batch) with Barke Munich that's not quote a month old yet. Close but not quite as clear yet
 Pretty tasty, huh?  :)

Nice. I have a Citra/Galaxy/Cleopatra IPA on now that's damn good at a couple weeks old. Nice hop combo.

The color looks more red with the back light. The flavor is very nice-rich and malty.
