I agree. Other than the oats, I'd say it looks good. I've never used Calypso, but I love rye malt.

I think it's fine. The rye gives it a little more body than normal.

I have gotten good flavor and aroma off of Calypso (mostly apple), but I used a lot.

I just had a pound of fresh Amarillo fall into my possession. Do you think calypso and Amarillo would be a good combo? I am assuming it sure would be.

I did an all calypso IPA and thoroughly enjoyed it. I did get some apple and pear character, but I think that perception was driven mostly by the aroma. That was my first use of the hop and since then it's been a staple bittering hop, with great results. But be warned, as a bittering hop a little goes a long way.

I have used it with amarillo and simcoe and it plays nice.

Just an update on this ale.

OG = 1.065
FG = 1.017
Tasting Sample before dry hop (fermentation was complete in 5 days), was a bit fiery and fruity.

I will provide further updates but I think it is going to be a malty/hoppy treat.

Fiery? As in warm-in-the-mouth? That's what I had too.

Yes sir, it is too be expected of a beer of this strength after less than a week. I am sure the cold crashing and cold conditioning will mellow it out substantially.

Ahhh yes, I just realized the rye component. I didn't have ANY rye.
