I used this recipe as a base but made a few slight mods and it turned out to be one of the best beers I've had in a very long time!!!!
I replaced the Wheat Extract with 375gm wheat malt (grain) just because I happend to have enough lying around to do so.
I also replaced the hops list to Willamete, Willamete and the Tettnang respectively.
I used WLP300 Yeast
I ended up brewing it a second time around because we drank it so quickly and added the zest of 4 lemons and some toasted&crushed Coriander seeds along with the final hop addition.
I dunno if it fits in with the style guide BUT IT IS ONE TASTY BREW!

One interesting thing I discovered was that during bottle conditioning, i agitated the sediment in a few bottles and then popped em in the fridge for about 48 hours before drinking and there was a very improvement in flavour!

Fulfills the style nicely

Very pleased with this beer!
Put a teaspoon of coriander in the steeping grains, which imparted a little complexity but no aggressive flavor, could probably bump it up a little
Subbed Willamette hops for the Hallertau, all additions
Added one whirlfloc tab, 15 min
Used Safale US-05, rehydrated
Fermented only single stage, average about 68 degrees w/swamp cooler, would do two-stage next time for greater clarity
Clean tasting with subtle sweetness, exceptionally drinkable
Crowd-friendly without being too boring. Yay!
