Yep, I still have 7 left from an exchange with another HBT member from last year but I want to be able to make this stuff myself.

Have you tried it yet?

I actually called Maritime Pacific to see if they would throw me a bone in helping formulate a recipe but they wouldn't say a peep.

I find it weird that even if they told me the hops and some of the grains but not in any certain order or quantity me trying to clone a beer and tell all of my friends about it would only promote their product and encourage more to go out and try it. Why are people so anal?

now on the other side of the coin, let's see, the northwest, where do I start:

Rogue
Pyramid
Red Hook
Pacific maritime
deschutes
Elysian
Hale's Ales Brewery
The Ram
Pike Place
Bert Grants (RIP)
Full Sail
Widmere
Snoqualmie Falls

I'm with you. Sure, Cali has some world-class breweries and beers, but the selection of commercial beers that are available sucks. There is really only one place to buy beer (BevMo) and they don't carry a lot of micros from out of the area. Sure, they have some of the bigger ones, but I was able to get more selection in Minneapolis than I can here, even though a number of breweries were further away.

I'll just mention Russian River and then say [insert a dozen others here].

The brews I can get out here is starting to be one of the only things I like about CA!
Sorry, I don't know anyplace in CA that has the brewbup scene Seattle does.
There are however good breweries all over the west coast

So I got a response from the brewery with some good information.

Here is what I know, it is a English Strong Ale, mostly Pale and Crystal malt, 9% ABV, fresh blend of Chinook and cascade hops and no spices.

Here a start, what other specialty grains do you think would go into a English Strong ale? To anyone that has had this, what do you think of the hopping, I know there is a very distinct hop taste and it is not cascade so I am sure they put chinook in at the end too. 1.084 to 1.015 gets 9%, it has a little residual sweetness but not much.

Recipe Specifications
--------------------------
Batch Size: 5.50 gal
Boil Size: 7.20 gal
Estimated OG: 1.084 SG
Estimated Color: 19.5 SRM
Estimated IBU: 56.3 IBU
Brewhouse Efficiency: 81.00 %
Boil Time: 90 Minutes

Ingredients:
------------
Amount Item Type % or IBU
13.75 lb Great Western 2 Row (2.0 SRM) Grain 89.23 %
1.00 lb Caramel/Crystal Malt -120L (120.0 SRM) Grain 6.61 %
0.50 lb Caramunich Malt 56 SRM Grain 3.3%
0.13 Chocolate 450 SRM Grain .86 %
1.25 oz Chinook [13.00 %] (90 min) Hops 45.3 IBU
1.00 oz Cascade [5.50 %] (30 min) Hops 11.0 IBU
1.00 oz Cascade [5.50 %] (0 min) Hops -
1.00 oz Chinook [13.00 %] (0 min) Hops -

I am thinking of trying this recipe this weekend. I have everything except some WLP007.

I am going to take out the chocolate but not sure if I should sub something or not. I will be tasting one tonight for one last chance to see if I need anything else.

There is a good aroma on this beer and I think it is dry hopped with Chinook because it is definitely not cascade as long as those are the only 2 hops used that is.
