Default Intense Hop Flavor without Severe Bitterness

Any ideas on how to get that Sam Adams hop flavor without the over-bittering that usually happens? I've tried very short boils with lots of fresh off the vine hops - still too bitter for any style beyond IPA.

Hey!
I have only experienced fresh whole hop and have only used this method in a micro-brewery. The best way to get powerful hop taste is to add hops just after your boil. Id say about 2x the amount you used as your bittering hop. I use a recirculating method to get the hops soaked right through! The hops are usually in the wort for up to 30 minuets

I grow my hops, so no worries there. You're saying no boil for the flavoring - maybe 160 degrees, for 30 minutes?

Like said above, LOTS of very late and or whirlpool additions.

I got the part about adding late, and I can recirculate. My question is about time and temp. Can anyone provide specifics on temp?

Sam Adams has hop flavor?

As someone else described, do hop bursts, lots of hops towards the end of the boil with less bittering hops for the full boil.

It's all about hop bursting. Don't at ANY hops at the beginning of the boil. Start adding them at 20. Keep on hopping at 15, 10, 5, 0 and dry hop. You get a ton of flavor and aroma that way.
