I know where you’re coming from - it can be difficult to get anything other than American-style pale ales these days. If you want an IPA that is in a traditional English style then you’re in for a challenge.Kev888 wrote: ↑Sun Oct 21, 2018 11:43 am... TBH I'm beginning to get slightly jaded with very hop-dominant pale beers at the mo, especially the overtly citrus-like types. They seem to be everywhere and I'm starting to miss the malt flavours. This is an attempt (yet to be judged) to achieve more of a balance between the two (the other pre-christmas brews will be darker styles).
With the amount of centennial and cascade you have in dry hops you might find you will get that overtly citrus flavour. The mix of cascade and willamette you have in the other additions would have been a better approach imo if you want more of a balanced approach between US and UK style pale ale.
