Default Need Help with an IPA extract recipe.

Hey all. I am looking for a good IPA or IIPA extract recipe. I can also do extract/steeping.

I am looking to make a beer that has a super fruity/grapefruit aroma and a super hoppy grapefruit flavor. I love hoppy beers.

I love beers such as:

Three floyds Dreadnaught
Founders Harvest Ale
Bell's Hopslam
Dogfish head 90 minute IPA
Southern Tier Unearthly

Just take a look at this description for Founders Harvest Ale:

"First sip of this beer rewards with a super juicy hop presence bursting with fresh orange and lemon citrus then continues to introduce toasted malt undertones."

I guess I am shooting for something close to Dreadnaught. I'll take whatever I can get. Not necessarily looking for an exact clone (although that's fine). Just looking for a delicious beer with the characteristics that I explained above.

I would greatly appreciate any help. Thanks for your time.

I'm not the IPA expert by any means, but ...

If it's a certain flavor you're looking for, the hop choice will be critical. I recently did an IPA using Centennial, Amarillo, and Cascade - the grapefruit punch is awesome.

Whatever recipe you decide to use, try dry-hopping with 2oz of leaf Amarillo hops in the secondary for about a week. It will add that grapefruitiness that you desire.

Thanks for the tip Slipgate. The Dreadnaught clone says to dry hop with 2 oz. of Cascade. Do you think Amarillo would be better?

Since I've been using the amarillo, nothing dry hops like it. I think Amarillo is the best dry-hopping hops that I have ever used. I tried 3 oz for a 5 gallon batch once and it was like biting into a grapefruit! Those extreme effects wore off after about 3 weeks and it was a great IPA after that. But I use just 2 oz now per 5 gallons.

Thanks jmkratt! I think I am going to follow the hop schedule on the Dreadnaught clone but I still need to figure out a way to do this with extract. Unfortunately, that clone is an all grain.

Yeah slipgate sounds good! I think I'm gonna follow the Dreadnaught Hop schedule but take your advice on the dry hopping and go with the amarillo.

Anyone ever try Ahtanum hops? I am wondering If I should substitute them for cascade. I have read that Ahtanum hops are super citrusy and grapefruity more so than cascade and also have a lower alpha acid making them less bitter than cascade. Sounds nice in theory but who knows?! maybe I can use both cascade and Ahtanum? Decisions, decisions!
