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 followed a standard pale malt + sweet crystal malt + lots of hops at early and late timepoints. No dry hopping was used. A standard ale yeast was used. This ale turned out pretty well and tasted like the usual Brewdog-kind of pale ale. Not the most creative but tastey.
