I have never actually had the beer but my clone turned out to be one of the best beers I have ever brewed. I would love to try the real thing but they dont distribute here.

Just finished my last of 2 6 packs that my took up from Harrisburg Pa. Im going to a store that has 2 more sixes put aside for me tomorrow as long as this snow stops. Id love to brew a clone of it, but dont know if one exists. The recipe seems to be top secret.

I decided to tweak the couple different ones I've seen on here with what I had on hand and what I typically like in IPAs, so don't expect this to be a clone, more of a cousin or rude uncle.

Fwh to get a smooth bitterness. 94 IBU calculated but the real thing doesnt taste that bitter. There's some trickeration going on with those trogner bros. If I calculate as a 20 min addition ibus are around 70 which *feels* right.

I didn't have any warrior or Columbus so I went with all nugget, simcoe, and Amarillo in the boil. I may put some nugget into the dry hop too, well see. I figure even if its not the real thing I can't go wrong with that hop schedule.

Grain bill I believe is damn close based on preliminary tastes and color comparison. I did a side by side real thing vs primary sample and the only difference between the two was mine was a little yeasty (expected). There is definitely a lot of Vienna in the real deal.

Keep in mind this is 11.5 gallons to the fermenter.

Oh you may want to bump up the grain bill a bit if you want to get to 7.5%. I maxed out my cooler and accidently used too much sparge water so I ended up higher volume, less og. It was close enough for my liking.

i wasn't too impressed with this years batch, it didnt have enough flavor from the hops. It was more of an imperial amber, its good but not what i was expecting after last years batch. It seemed to have a more pronounced hop profile last year.

It IS an imperial amber. You know that right?

I thought my first bottle of the year was a little less hoppy than i remembered. Then I opened it at the same time as Pliny, Sucks and Hopslam. It was plenty hoppy. What an awesome beer.
