Taste Notes

Wow! These hops smell like passion fruit. A very hoppy but still manageable beer. The hops cover up the 7.71 ABV quite nicely.


My standard Sierra clone, but with a lot more malt and Warrior/Citra hops. Also going to jack up the mash temp to 155 for some more malt body. Mash in was at only 152 with BeerSmith recommended hot liquor temp. Preboil SG of 1.062. Postboil at 1.069. I had several boilovers. This beer took second in the IPA category at the NHC regional for Colorado, Texas and Oklahoma. Round 2: Mash in at 153.


Great IPA

Was actually wanting to try the podcast version but your's looked straight forward ($10 cheaper too) so gave it a try instead. I did however follow the dry hoping schedule from the podcast recipe and is was fantastic brew - favorite IPA ever - perfect DIPA example. The podcast version is in primary right now and couple of notes: lower OG & lighter SRM than this (your) recipe. Will update on comparison in 6 weeks when it's done and in the keg but I suspect your's will be better. Will put the comparison on both recipes. Cheers, DB
