Centennial Zest Ale

I wanted to try to come up with something that tasted like a Goose Island IPA.  Now, I'm not claiming this is as good as a Goose Island, but I was very happy with the results.  I love the citrus/hop balance in the Goose Island and the drinkability of it.  So I took the Horse's Ass Ale recipe and added 1 oz of Centennial Hops (used in Goose Island) and 1 lemon zest to also add to the citrus flavor.  Pours a light copper, slight hoppy aroma (ten MrBeer recipes in, and aroma thus far is never that strong for any of my brews), a thin, thin head remains throughout, great carbonation, crisp, 'zesty' -- slight lemon and honey taste.  Very easy to drink.  If I could sum this up I'd say -- it's a nice Light IPA.  Thus far, I've always waited the 28 days to condition, but out of curiosity, I tried this at 21 and 26 (three days chilled in each case) and it was very good.
