This is a tweaked version of @jamie_savoie Tropicale which I heard very good things about. I couldn't get my hands on any nelson sauvin so I subbed in cascade. I know this will completely change the beer but I thought it would still work well as a hoppy summer APA. I also added a second addition of dry hops as it didn't have quite enough on the nose after 10 days.
