Looks really good.... For 5 gallons, yes? Will only 1g of grains of paradise really show through?

Yep, 5 gallons in the fermenter. Not sure if the grains of paradise will be noticeable, I don't think I have used them before. I'm ok if they are subtle as I am pretty happy with the hop schedule. Smells good so far!
