Looks pretty good from the out set. What’s the predicted OG, FG?

Guessing 66-67 mash temp?

I prefer my Ipas, pa’s fairly dry. But with no crystal I think that’s a good mix. Bit of extra bitterness will have lay well with the extra body. Your over the 1:1 IBU/GU factor however I think the body will help. 

I think that you’ll find the right kind of mixture between the bitterness and the fruity pine of that hop combo. 

Looks good mate. 

Id personally double that dry hop, ok up to 150g as a west coast should be prominent.

For that malt grist if it is @ 66-67 I would have expected a slightly lower FG?

What about a five minute and whirlpool addition?

Don't West Coast IPAs usually have at least some crystal? The range seems to be 2-6%, of light to medium crystal. 

Cheers,

Christina.

I'm glad it got down there TRT as I figured it might. The hopping notes at that FG will be very noticeable I would think.

Let us know what it's like once you've got it on the pour. 😉

Cheers,

Lusty.

well here is some pictures quite impressed with clarity a nice citrusy taste but I thought aroma would be stronger  but a nice and crisp drink . All in all a good balanced beer with hop forwardness as it should I think  . A Neipa this weekend with some where between 300g and 380g  for 16L decisions
