cascade SMASH
As it was coming to the middle of summer I really wanted to make a summer ale; one similar to American pale ales, which are bitterly hopped with hops like cascade (the floral grapefruit-like ones), light textured and bodied but a bit sweet. For this I follo...

I did a Citra Smash and it was the most drinkable beer ever. 1 oz bittering and half of the rest at 10 min and the rest after I cut off the heat. Amazing flavor.
