Homebrew: Modern Pilsner

Yesterday I brewed up another batch of lager. This time I attempted an IPA-like beer, but the twist is that it will be fermented with a lager yeast and at low temperatures. The malt bill was simple, with Pilsner, CaraPils and Melanoidin malt. During the boil I single hopped with Centennial to around 60 IBU. After fermentation and lagering, I will add some random dry hops based on what opened packages I have in my freezer. I pitched a large starter of WLP800 Pilsner Lager yeast, and set the thermostat at 10C. The brewday went well, and I collected 19 liters of wort and hit an OG of 1.067. I mashed at low temoeratures (~63C) to produce an easily fermentable wort. This one should be interesting!
