Citra American Pale Ale

This year Third Eye Brewing is hosting Big Brew Day on May 1st (1008 2nd Ave N in Escanaba, stop by!). I realized the other day that I damn well better have beer for everyone or there might be a riot. I also have over a pound of Citra hops that I've been meaning to play with. Since not many people I know have tasted this hop I really wanted to showcase it. What better style to do this with than a simple American Pale Ale?

Malt bill:
9lb (90%) Rahr 2-Row
0.5lb (5%) Crystal 10L
0.5lb (5%) Crystal 40L

Hop bill:
0.75 oz Citra @ 60 min
0.5 oz Citra @ 15 min
0.5 oz Citra @ 0 min

Yeast: US-05

OG: 1.058
IBU: 44
ABV: ~5.8%

Real simple...should be a great beer to drink while brewing!
