Default Hop Slam!

I'm looking for a good clone to this crazy over the top beer by Bells. Not that I could brew it without a bigger mash tun but I might be able to pull somthing off with some DME.

IBU 106
A 9.8%

I've never had that before... If you mail me a 6-pack, I could try to help you come up with a recipe!

Well, go overload on bittering hops (take a standard IPA and go bonanza with it) and make a malt liquor. hah

This beer is 10%ABV, malty, and in your face hoppybitter.

I didn't get a whole lot of nose to the hops, alot of alcohol and some malt.

Flavor was somewhat malty, very warm on the tongue.

Overall this was a nice beer but I think i would like it better with a little less alcohol. I felt it took away from the hop flavor profile, and the alcohol didn't meld with the flavors as much as I would expect. Then again this probably wasn't meant to be much of a session Man those hops were still good though. Makes me want to pour one right now and pop a fresh hop cone or two into it. That would be NICE!

This beer is great, I can't say I picked up on alcohol all that much. To me it is just two hearted taked a step further. Very, very good.

I was just curious what it would take in the way of grains. I came up with about 17 to 18lbs. I thought this was a really well balanced beer considering.
