I was at Town Hall on the 4th and got to talking about the Mama with the bar tender. I guess the grain bill is pretty standard for an IPA; 2-row some light crystal and I am guessing a little oats. Town hall works with white labs and uses their yeast for their house strain. Its gotta be WLP005 British ale. Now to hops... I asked if they had changed the hop schedule since their current offering on their website is :
They have been making mama for some time and HBC 342 is a new player. Anyway I think there must be a full spectrum of hop techniques with this one from first wort hop, a hop stand, and nice size dry hop.
This and Lagunitas Sucks are my two favorite IPAs. I think I may combine these two projects and come up with a good multi hop pain the arse brew...
