Here is a visual comparison of the clone and the original. The original is darker in color. Here are my thoughts on the clone.Appearance:
The clone came out a little lighter in color. This may to due to the fact that I used crystal 20 as opposed to Honey Malt which ranges from 20-30 °LSmell:
The dry hopping gave it a nice aroma although I think the commercial version had a slightly stronger aroma.Taste:
Overall I was really impressed with this recipe. I think the bitterness was very close. I did notice that the original has a stronger grapefruit taste to it. Also, the original is sweeter which is probably due to their use of honey malt as nealf alluded to. If I make it again I may use a pound of honey malt instead of the crystal 20. I was really surprised that the beer was ready to drink after only 6 weeks. At 7.2% abv there was no alcohol hotness detected.
