BYO's latest issue has a clone recipe for this beer. I can post it when I get home if you like.

I just got my copy, and they do it different than 21a says. 21a says they use 2row, the mag clone doesn't also the mag clone uses centennial in the kettle 21a says that is dry hop only.

Just dry hopped mine last night, can't wait ti try it.

I saw that byo recipe as well, and I'm not the pope, but that beer is pretty sweet, I don't get a lot of just two row flavor out of it, or that it's much of a percentage. The hopping could go either way. I'm gonna brew it up with byo's grain bill for sure and see what happens.

I know my one variable I will likely change in the future is the % of each base grain, but to totally exclude a grain that is said to be present by the brewer isn't a true clone. In any case this brew smells amazing, and the gravity samples taste damn good.

In the beginning this beer was HUGE on citrus, but not in an IPA way, in a way I couldn't place. I just pulled a pint after being away for 5 days, and that overwhelming citrus is gone (though it was amazing too), and it has really rounded out to a nice session bitter. I love this keg, and with only about 20% left, I'm gonna miss it. I will brew this on a regular basis.

What was the recipe you used and how does it compare to the original?

j1rubin, how'd the BYO recipe treat you? Like many others, this is one of my favorite commercials. Dying to brew a similar one.
