Elmer, that looks really good. I love all three of those hops you used (especially the chinook for bittering). Leave a six pack or so for at least a year and you'll thank me for it later, I've done a similar batch and it really evolved over the year as it aged. I try and make them in January so I can ring in the next new year with a few. Unfortunately I didn't this year.

I intended on making a small batch and aging 1/2 until the end of the year and the rest for the year after.

I also intended to have 11% abv , however my efficiency was lousy and will end up with 8%, hopefully .
