Was this deemed cloned?

While I haven't brewed this exact clone. I did one basically the same (added in more 2row instead of DME/LME) and it really is dead on. Got the recipe from avery a year ago. what a freakin delicious beer.

got some simcoe in the other day. I do think it is time to put this beer back on the "to-do" list.

There grain bill is now my standard for my IPAs and APAs. Except I use aromatic over victory.

yum yum yum

Great beer, and I will do it soon. But i must ask-What is the point of the ~1lb of dme even in there for? Doesn't make much sense in an AG recipe. May as well do 2row row

There is only so much sugar that Avery can extract from their MLT. Adding DME allows them to increase the gravity in the kettle. They are already losing a ton of beer due to hop mass in the kettle and in the fermenter.

I do wonder if they do a "hop press" to minimize wort loss during the boil.

None added, but really none taken away either.
