Newb trying to find a Longboard clone

I really enjoyed this lightweight lager and would love to get any help available to attempt a clone.

The website lists the following:

Bitterness: 20 IBU
Alcohol by Volume: 4.6%
Original Gravity: 10.95° P
Malts: Pale (Premium 2-row)
Hops: Mt. Hood, Hallertau, Sterling, Millenium

A simple starting recipe would be something along the lines of:

For 5.5 gallons @ 75% extraction efficiency:

8.75 lbs American Pale 2-Row
.5 oz. Mount Hood 60 min 4.8AA
.5 oz. Hallertau Mittelfruh 20 min 3.75AA
.5 oz. Sterling 10 min 8.7AA
.5 oz. Millenium 0 min 15.5AA

Mash @ 148F for 90 minutes.

The yeast is probably something like American Lager (2035) or German Lager (S34/70) yeast, may even be Pilsen Lager (2007).

Though they don’t state it, they may use 7lbs of Pale 2-Row and 1lb of some type of sugar/adjunct to get the attenuation up, though that’s probably a long shot.

The hops schedule could be adjusted to move the middle 2 more toward the flameout, but that would remain to be seen.

The hops schedule will be the trickiest part to get right.

Thanks for the great info!
