What type of brewer are you? Do you need an extract or all grain recipe? I have a recipe that's very close and will need to see if I can dig it up.

You are right to love this beer. My favorite IPA next to Headhunter IPA from Fatheads.

I'd be interested in seeing an all grain recipe for this beer. It's one of the best IPA's I've ever had...

I'll dig this one up from the brink of death. . . I don't have a recipe but I can throw some ideas out and we can go from there.

Malt: what malt? my guess is mostly two row with a very small amount of c-40 and maybe some munich for color and head retention and depth and that might be too dark, it's damned pale. I detect little to no nuttiness. . . no victory, aromotic, etc. in this.

Hops: For fact I can tell you there are Citra hops in this bad boy. It says on the website. I'd also guess that there are some amount of british style hops going on here too, judging from the label and smell/taste.

Yeast: gotta be cal ale 001 or 1056 but it pours as clear as can be, just like every TBK beer I've ever drank. I don't know if they filter or if they are using a high flocking yeast. If they aren't filtering then I guess I'd almost have to be wrong about 001 or 1056 then. Not a speck of yeast on the bottom of the bottle. . .they filter right. Whatever it is, it attenuates well, the finish is dry and crisp, makes me want another sip

Speaking of another sip, that finish has to make you believe in a low mash temp. . . 148? Put that together with a clean well attenuating yeast and a low crystal/caramel content and things sound about right to me. . . anyone agree with those thoughts?

Water: I'm not sure what they do with the water. . . and I'm too lazy to look up anything for cleveland. I'd guess at a high load of gypsum though. The bitterness supports a Sulfite to Cholrite ratio of 2:1 or greater.

damn, it smells like the good stuff. I see why they named it this. Can I just have the dry hop bill? Dry hopped you say? Please, obviously.

So I took a minute and emailed the brewery about the recipe and got this reply,

"We are still keeping the recipe under wraps since its how we make our living but I can tell you the American 2 row, Citra, Centennial and Amarillo are the main pieces to the puzzle."

So there are a few helpful hints that may get us a little further toward a good clone.

I have heard that they use Citra to bitter, then use equal amounts of the other hops at a few different additions - maybe 2-3 late-hop additions. Plus they dry hop with a combo of all of the hops.

Also, this beer is DRY. No malt in this bad boy!

Hope that helps a bit!

Why on earth did they commemorate this man with a beer?
