Grid IPA 3V Conical v1_0

Another dream brewery run, this time using Imperial A01 again but using Great Western High Color Pale Ale Malt. It has a description similar to a Maris Otter. TL;DR it was kind of like MO but the flavor profile was not great and I won’t be using it again. A01 OK but not great. The ester profile is not what I want. Vic Secret is a promising hop but not good along. Needs some dank and citrus to go along with it.
