Deschutes like to use Northern Brewer. If you check out the "homebrew" section of the website, it seems to show up in almost every beer. I don't generally keep that hop on hand, so I just brewed with what I had. So, yeah, bittering with NB might get you closer to a clone. Interesting that they now include Brambling Cross in the recipe.

BUMP....its summer and ive been drinking a lot of this beer. Would love to hear if anyone has a definitive recipe that includes the brambling cross and munich malt listed on Deschutes website. Very curious and excited to try brewing it, I recommend anyone who hasnt sampled it to do so, very refreshing. Thanks.

Nope just the one try for me. Brambling Cross is just way off my radar. I use NW grown hops for all my beers these days.

Carastan is 30-37 SRM British crystal. Very nice malt in small doses. Personally I would not use biscuit in place of crystal in a clone if this beer. I get more caramel/bready than biscuit in the pallet. I think the flavor is as much from the yeast as the malt, 002/1968 gives a nice bready finish.

Default Deschutes Twilight 3rd batch

Just putting in my 2 cents on this one. Just yesterday I brewed my 3rd batch of this, mainly because it is such a beautifully hoppy sessionable IPA. The second time I brewed it, I switched to Citra hops for the dry hopping and it was equally awesome, if not maybe a touch more so. I came in pretty close to the 1.051 each time (yesterdays batch was 1.054) so it should be another keeper. I highly recommend trying this one, it's definitely in my rotating batch of best beers.
