If you're not familiar with BJCP guidelines and how they define IPAs, then how do you define them simply by looking at the label?

I wonder if he likes this popular "IPA":


^^As long as "IPA" remains on this bottle, I am free to call anything whatever I want. I am also 100% certain that my faux-PA resembles an IPA much more than this swill.

Or the reverse... in the instances where you're given a hoppy beer by a brewery like Sixpoint, Troegs, or Lagunitas, which feel, look, taste and smell everything like what an IPA should be, but they are not. Dale's Pale Ale is labeled a Pale Ale, but Oskar Blues flat out said it was an IPA. But Dale's IPA didn't sound as good. You can't always go by the bottle or can.

Not familiar with English style IPAs. And that particular one won't be on my pick list.

Not familiar with BJCP guidelines nor am I interested. Does it make me less of a fan of American crafted IPAs...don't think so. Here's a description from one source if you care.

Well,

I was just looking for a basic recipe that I could try out different hops and different hop schedules. I think this does it.

1 last question. For an IIPA, would I simply up the 2 row, or should I add additional specialty grains as well.

I like to mix things up with my recipes but I have used this base a few times for IPAs with good results:

6# 2-Row
6# Marris Otter
.5# Carapils
.5# Crystal 20L

70% efficiency comes out to around 1.065 SG.
