Default Help with Head Hunter IPA Clone

Was hoping to get some help coming up with partial mash clone of Fat Head's Head Hunter IPA. Here are the specs they list on their website:

OG: 1.070
FG: 1.013
Malts: Pale, CaraMalt, C-15, Cara-Pils
Hops: Columbus, Simcoe, Centennial

Really was just looking for some help in figuring out the malt recipe so that I could play with the hops combinations. Thanks!

I haven't had this one, but I'll help you out as much as I can using the information you gave about the beer. I also found out that it's 7.5% abv and 87 IBUs. Highly carbonated with medium body and a golden to light orange color.

What's your start boil size and end batch size (in gallons)? How much grain can your system handle (in lbs.)?

This is based on a 6 gallon full volume boil with 5 gallons in the carboy using 4 lbs. of grain - Take note of the late additions of sugar and extract - No carapils necessary:

I was just reading an interview with matt cole on their brewery website and he stated they use mash hops and first wort hopping also. Really awesome that they have hit the store shelves. There is a lot of potential for them to really take off big! Great lakes is about the only brewery Cleveland gets credit for from people that dont know the area even though we have some great smaller pubs. Nice to see someone else start getting recognized.

hmmm just read another article on their website. This was at the end of the article.
"One last note: If you want Cole’s recipe for Head Hunter IPA, you only have to get Mitch Steele’s (Stone Brewing Co. brewmaster) upcoming book on IPAs to be called “For the Love of Hops,” scheduled for September 2012 release. "
