Very crisp citrusy ale, golden color, can taste the malts as well as the nice Summit and cascade hops. Loved my extract version so much had to go all-grain and get that sorghum tang out of it.

Boil 90*mins and add hops and finings according to above boil times.
Rehydrate dry yeast, 2 cups boiled water cooled to 95-100. Add yeast let soak 15 min stir and let set another 15 min then pitch with 30 min.
Ferment in primary for 2 weeks then rack to secondary and dry-hop with 1 oz Cascade hops for an additional 2 weeks, bottle and condition for at least 10 days and enjoy.
Gravity readings and ABV are for *
