    You may have better luck with responses on the homebrewing forums. Sounds like a delcious beer though!

    You might want to add some Centennial. I'm also a big fan of Amarillo and Citra, you might think about those as well. You can get a good sense of the flavors by making up a hop tea and smelling and tasting it.
