Really nice recipe, I am becoming more and more of a fan of the 30 minute addition for IPA's, I think chinook, cascade..etc....etc...at that time in the boil gives the beer that amazing tangerine/grapefruit flavor that is so great about IPA.

Just wanted to update the thread... I brewed the recipe that I posted this past Saturday (4/16/11). It's bubbling away in the primary now. I just bought a 6.5 gallon carboy so I scaled the recipe up to 6 gallons. But, not being used to the new sizes, I undershot my target amount and only ended up with about 5.25 gallons as opposed to the 6 gallons I was going for. It was boiling pretty vigorously and I probably didn't collect enough wort from the runnings as well as evaporating quite a bit. I also didn't have any Simcoe on hand, so I subbed Falc. Flight. Nonetheless, it is smelling like it's going to be an awesome brew... and the first wort taste had the makings of something excellent. I will keep the thread posted on the progress.

Turned out excellent. Not an exact clone of Hopsecutioner, but a very good IPA nonetheless.

Here are my comparison notes (Images below):

Appearance: The color between the two is extremely close. Mine has a case of chill haze and I think that is showing more in the pictures than in real life. I took a close up of the bottom of the glasses to show the difference. If there is any difference at all, mine is a very slight bit darker... however, I feel that if it was clear, the color would be spot on.

Smell: Hopsecutioner has a strong citrus hop smell. Mine does not have quite that strong of a hop smell. I left out the Cascade dry hop (I didn't have much left and wanted to save it for the next brew) and feel that may have been one of the causes. I'm also feeling that I need to ease up on the Warrior a tad, and add more citrus type hops such as Chinook and Centennial.

Taste: The taste was close, but not exact. Again, this is a great IPA, but I wanted to clone Hopsectioner, and I don't feel it's exact enough. The taste comparison is similar to the smell in that I feel that there was not enough citrus hop overtones. I feel the Chinook and Centennial are my first places to start tweaking.

Mouthfeel: Very close here. I think they both have the same mouthfeel, however, I was quite surprised to see that my head retention and lacing whipped the junk out of Hopsectioner. It wasn't even close.

All in all, this is a great drinking IPA, and I would have no hesitation to brew it again. But, it's not a clone, and that was my goal... so I'm going to tweak the recipe a little further and post the changes.

Mine is on the right in the first picture outside... all the rest, the bottle shows which is which.

Thanks for the review. I just read mine again and they are similar. I didn't get the strong grapefruit flavor that the original had either. To be honest none of my IPA's (using the C hops) get the strong grapefruit flavor in them. I wonder if my hops aren't fresh or maybe its my water profile. If you adjust the C hops and it comes out better please post it. Thank you.

so cercueil, did you brew the DME version of the recipe you posted above? I haven't made the jump to all-grain yet and want to try this clone out. Is it safe to say that I can match the hop schedule along with the tweaks mentioned above and get something closer to hopsecutioner?

I haven't brewed the extract version but as long as you have nice fresh liquid or dry malt I think it would come out ok. The problem I had with extract is that I always finished at about 1.020 so your beer might be a little sweeter and have less alcohol but to be honest the abv is pretty high already so I don't think its a big deal.

Seeing this thread bumped back up reminds me to take another shot at this. The previous attempt didn't last very long in my house and now I'm excited to be reminded to make the changes previously posted. I'm personally going to start with lessening the amount of Warrior, and adding Simcoe and possibly Chinook. I think the Honey and Victory need to be backed off a slight bit as well. BullGator, not sure if you have Beersmith or not, but I'd be more than happy to post my changes if you don't and would find the revised recipe that I now plan on attempting helpful.

Well, I am down to my last 6 bottles of Yoopers DFH 60 clone. I wanted something new to try, so I am drinking a Hopsecutioner right now which brought me to this thread.

maffewl, have you brewed this again, and what tweaks did you make if you did?

Thanks!

hadn't really run into Hopsecutioner before until I tasted it at a festival about a month back -- and LOVED it. coming out of the keg you could really get your nose around the Amarillo and Cascades in it.

This is next on my brew schedule and based on what I've read here and the recent feedback from maffewl I'm going with the following:

1 lbs Munich Malt - 10L (10.0 SRM) Grain 5 6.7 %
8.0 oz Victory Malt (25.0 SRM) Grain 6 3.3 %

0.50 oz Warrior [15.00 %] - Boil 60.0 min Hop 7 21.6 IBUs
1.00 oz Chinook [13.00 %] - Boil 30.0 min Hop 8 28.7 IBUs

Why add the rice hulls? No wheat/rye/flaked, so you shouldn't need it.
