Thanks, man!  It's tasty.
Looks great. Do you mind sharing your grain bill?

Not a bit. It's silly simple.

75.5% Briess 2 row.
17.5% Muntons MO (not my very favorite MO, using up what I had. Works fine here, though).
7% C40

152F/60

WY1450

Next sunny day, I'll get another pic- it's paler than it looks there.

Thanks for the recipe. I find simple is often better.  I have been into hops lately. I have been brewing reds and SMASH pale ales. I want to brew a more traditional APA.

I was wondering about the color. The glass you have it in looks pretty wide up top. The bottom section looks a lot lighter.

Yeah, simple is almost always better IMO. I've used biscuit and Victory to get a little toastiness, but the MO is a softer toasty character, and doesn't come off like a bitter at that small amount . The glass is one of the Spiegelau IPA glasses - it's smaller but weighted on the bottom, and the glass is light, thin crystal so it's pretty stable actually.
As for the hops, FWIW I added 40 IBU Magnum @ 60 (no more boil hops), then cooled to 175F and added 2.25 oz each of Azacca and Lemon Drop to steep for 30 mins. Dry hopped 1.5 oz of each.

Thanks! Hops sound good too.
