Default all late hops

I have heard that adding all of the hops in the boil at the last 10 mins or so will give you a lot more aroma and more of a smooth bitterness. Should I double the bittering additions if I'm adding them at the end of the boil.

It is commonly called hopbursting. It can produce some really amazing beer. If you want the appropriate bitterness, run it through a calculator to make sure you know where you'll end up. I don't think simply doubling the hops will give you an accurate estimate of IBUs, so use a program.

+1 on the program.

One of the homebrewers in our local club makes a wonderful Amarillo pale ale, he uses four ounces in the kettle starting with a 15 minute addition and then uses another ounce or two to dry hop it in the keg. Next time pale ale is up on my brew schedule I'll be trying the same but I'll use 4-6 ounces of Cascade. Should make a nice grapefruit bomb.

This sounds interesting. What style would you recommend using this technique with?

I'm planning an ale yeast pilsner clone. Hopbursting a bunch of Saaz sounds cool.

Hopbursting I would think would be most appropriate for styles that feature more hop flavor, and aroma. Any style that has a flavor profile that is more malty would probably not benefit much from a Hopburst.

Well, I really like Budvar, which has a strong floral hop aroma. I think I'll try hopbursting for my clone with the same recalculated bitterness.
