Notes

Added a hopback towards the end on the fly to get rid of some extra hops. Will decide on the dry hopping schedule after primary is complete. Color is a little darker than I wanted. I would remove the Belgian Aromatic and add Vienna or Victory malts and use Crystal 20 instead of 60. Bitterness is spot on after intial taste. I also added swapped out 8.5 of Belgian ale malt with German Munich as a test.
