Default Partial - Triple Cs IPA

Slightly dry, with a smooth balance of hop bitterness, aroma and maltiness. First sip made me think it had an almost smokey taste to it. The IBUs are there, the aroma is there. This is definately a drier IPA for those of you that prefer the hops a little more than the malt.


This might be too lit. Better color though

I've parked this recipe here until it has been brewed and sampled.

Cascade, Centennial, and Chinook matched up with a solid malt backbone. It looks similar to Sierra Nevada Celebration. This beer is going to rock.

The IBUs seem way low to me here. What was your boil volume? Can't figure out how else they could be so low.

3. Actually ended up being like 4.2 or something like that. IBUs might be higher on mine. I calc'd it at 3 though

I opened the fermenter this afternoon (didnt get time this weekend, so its been 9 days since pitching), took a gravity reading: 1.008!!!! 8.2% ABV is what i calculated.

This beer dried up hardcore. I wasn't afraid though, so i drank up the theif'd portion of it.

WOW!.

This beer has wonderful hop character, and the sweetness isn't as powerful as I was thinking it might. It is the driest beer I've made to date (not counting apfelwein). However, it doesnt taste like other dry IPAs I have had. It still has a warm nuttiness to it, and still tastes mildly sweet.

I don't know if I have had a commercial beer that tastes quite like it, but pine and citrus stand out heavily. Also, the IBUs tasted much higher than my 3-gallon boil calculation said it would be (I also did about a 4.2 gallon boil). But the sweetness, bitterness, and aroma are all there pronounced (despite the drieness of it).


I decided to rack it into a secondary because the hops and yeast had combined to make a horrifyingly disgusting goop which was still cycling around the fermenter. I will check the gravity again on Sunday and possibly bottle next Tuesday if it is leveled out.

This beer is wonderful. I am afraid to know what my smaller boil would end up tasting like. I will have to split the batch next time too!!
