Batch Size:  5.5 Gallons
Measured Original Gravity: 1.059
SG Measured
Final Gravity: 1.012 SG
IBUs:  60
ABV:  6.2%

Recipe:

Mash at 150F for 75 minutes then fly sparge until desired volume of wort is collected:

11 lbs Pale Malt (US 2 Row)
1 lbs Cara-Pils/Dextrine
1 lbs Caramel/Crystal Malt

1.00 oz Centennial [8.70 %] – Boil 60.0 min
1.00 oz Centennial [8.70 %] – Boil 30.0 min
2.00 oz Cascade [6.20 %] – Boil 10.0 min
Hop 1.00 oz Simcoe [13.00 %] – Boil 1.0 min

1.5 pkg American West Coast (Lallemand #BRY-97)

3.00 oz Mosaic [12.70 %] – Dry Hop 7.0 Days

Tasting Notes: Hindsight being 20/20, 2 lbs of crystal malts may have been overkill for head retention.  This beer was slightly maltier than I like my American IPAs, but still a solid brew just bursting with citrus aromas.  Not a re-brew for me, but if you like your IPAs more centrally balanced, certainly not a bad choice.
