Taste Notes

Double IPA with very complex malt flavors that are well matched by very tropical and fruity aromas and flavors from the large additions of Mackinac hops. Great head retention and clarity. Liked by many that don't like IPA's, loved by those that do. Recipe verbatim from Can You Brew It Podcast. Read notes for additional brewing info.


Start dry hop 2 days after primary fermentation completes; I started at 10 days. Then add additional dry hop additions every three days. Keg/Bottle 3 days after last hop addition to get off hops and avoid and grassy flavors. Brewer uses Koppaclear tablets from Brewers Supply group as wort clarification agent. Whirfloc cleared mine up quite well, so I've substituted that in this recipe. Brewer uses Briess malts for all but 2-row and Honey. 2-row is Great Western, Honey is Gambrinus. Brewed with hard water - High in hardness, low in alkalinity.
