Notes:

This is a re-brew of West Coast IPA #1, which took first place in two separate competitions winning best IPA in both Washington, DC and Baltimore competitions over 60 other IPAs. I later re-brewed this recipe, with little changes.

The small 10 minute addition are a normal in boil, the big 10 minute additions are added at flameout for 30 minute hopstand.

Cold crashed in primary for a for a day (set to 34) to drop some crap out.

Had problems with the keg, the poppet on the liquid post was bad. Hopefully no oxygen got in while I was fixing it.
