So, on the front of a hop stoopid bottle it says: SG 1.084 and alcohol by volume 7.7%. When I punch this all into promash, I get an FG of 1.026 ---that seems like a huge FG something is going on here.... If you go by the posted recipe, SG 1.074 and FG of 1.016 would give you the 7.7 volume alcohol, which seems do-able.
I will be following the posted recipe w/o the hopshot, and I am worried about some off(vegetable, grassy) flavors from the huge bittering addition. Should I use the highest alpha hop I have? or maybe cut down on the IBUs and hope my buddies don't notice? Anything else I can do? or maybe just dont worry have a homebrew etc...

Thread necro, sorry about that.

On my bottle it says 1.085 and 8% ABV. They must be reformulating the recipe for some reason.

I brewed it with the hopshots and it turned out dead on. I'd just pick up some hopshots from NB, they are real cheap.

For those who have tasted the clone: How close is it? This is easily becoming one of my favorite beers, and I am planning on brewing the extract version over the winter.

Default i have brewed this....almost.

i brewed this about a month ago..i used wyeast 1056 yeast because thats what i had on hand. i also missed my O.G. by about 5 points due to equipment calibration..all that being said, it tastes pretty good. Yesterday i brewed a 10gal batch of the same recipe using the proper yeast and nailed the gravity...i will post progress..ill also let everyone know how the original batch tastes in a few days. initial tastes were thin tasting. Hopefully due to lack of carbonation.
