    Hey guys and gals so im planning on brewing a nwpa soon and i am still contemplating the hops i want to use, i want to get a nice pine nose and bite on the beer so i was considering using Chinook and Cascade however i still want some spiciness to come through with out it being to bitter, less than 65-70 IBU's, additionally im trying to get a nice copperish red color from it so any tips or advice would be greatly appreciated. Cheers.

    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.
