    Poor recipe. The hop additions are way off. Took me 5 batches to get this down. Drop the 30M, add a 10M and a double dose of Whirlpool hop additions. I’m still playing with the malt bill as well. Do not rack to a secondary there is no need to. Keep it in the primary, use a sanitized steeping bag over the end of your auto siphon that’s going to the carboy.

      Also try and reverse the pattern of the hop additions. Citra/Mosaic and Mosaic/Citra and also experiment with dry hopping with both hops. See what you like best
