As the title suggests, I'd like a bit of feedback on this hop user-upper. I've realised I have too many odds in my freezer so trying to get rid of some. Opting for a golden ale style brew. And feedback, especially on my hopstand, most welcome. 👍

Can't think of any more Giggles jokes.

Bitterness seems a bit low, 20 IBU in 1044 beer is below 0.5. As golden ale is really a version of bitter I aim around 0.75, which would be 33 IBU.

But it's a personal preference.

I like my beers with more bitterness, but I tried to stay within the limits given by the recipe builder I'm using. Am going to ramp it up a bit. 👍
