A couple of people have asked me to post this recipe, so here it is. A refreshing and aromatic Pale Ale that's full bodied and not too bitter.

I mashed in at 66C and lost 1-2C in the hour.

I made this using all pellet hops and US-05 yeast. Tapped the keg tonight and this is a very pleasant taste. I can't think what is reminds me of but I'll probably wake up in the middle of the night shouting "Eureka". I've used all three hops before but never in any sort of combination. I forgot to tick the "no chill" box in brewmate so the IBU's are a bit off but will definitely give it another run. Thanks for the recipe.
