It's a little early to re-evaluate the recipe for a beer which hasn't even had time to condition yet, but I just can't help myself.
The beer needs a slightly higher alcohol level to balance out the hops and, I think, some caramalt or light crystal to add a little more colour and body.
To compensate for the extra alcohol, I've upped the late hops by 10g.
