I was making another IPA around the same time so I pitched 1.5 packets US-05 for both. Hopefully it will keep coming down a bit, and maybe racking it to another carboy will wake the yeast up a little. If not, I still love the flavor and don't mind too much if it doesn't come down.

On a side note, I *tasted* it last night and just the amount from the hydrometer test tube was enough to make me feel good. This beer packs a punch!

Yea it does, 2-3 of these I'm pretty well there lol. But the hops and crystal malt make it very smooth really masking the 10.5 abv. No one I've given the beer to could tell it was that strong, at least by taste haha

So I served this at Brewfest today and it was a huge hit!!! It was awesome seeing people come back for more over the 150 varieties of micros they had available. I even had a number of people ask where they could buy my IPA not realizing it was my homebrew and not a commercial craft. No other way to say it other than I'm proud of this recipe!!!!

Keywest, I'm not going to brew this exactly but it's given me some inspiration for my second to next batch. Thanks! Also why is the recipe called an IIPA vs. an IPA?

What changes are you making? IIPA would be typically be an IPA at or above 10abv and I believe 80-120 IBU(could be off on the exact #s). This one comes in at 10.5abv and about 68IBU so in lands in the middle of the two guidelines. The flavor is still very hop forward and to quote the head brewer from Bluepoint brewing, gave him some a few days ago while he was down here.... "you wouldn't have the slightest clue how strong this beer is until you had already drowned two of em"

KeyWest, I didn't mean offense! I thank you for the recipe. I challenge myself to make all my beers below 6% ABV, which may seem totally the opposite of this recipe, but the hops combination sounds awesome. It sounds insane but I like the challenge of making flavorful beers without the extraordinary grain bill or the side effects from drinking it.

Cheers! Awesome recipe

No offense taken at all, just curious what changes your making so I know what can be derived from this recipe. If your going for a pale spin off, I'd think cut an oz off the centennial, use a 1 oz for citra your 10 min addition, 1 oz Amarillo at 5 mins, and maybe a small dry hop.. If possible when you scale down try and keep the same percentages for the grain bill and I think youd have a lot of versatility to work with. Post back with results I'm interested!!!

Awesome! I got one batch planned out before this, but I'll try it. I only make a gallon and a quarter batches so it's not a big deal if it doesnt work out as a true session IPA. Thanks for the recipe again

Put this on tap about a week ago and tried some the other day. Wow. That's about all I can say.

Wish I had gotten the fg down a few more points, but I can't complain. It's my best beer to date. Thanks for the original recipe!
