I appreciate your posts on the guidelines, but I think you are mistaken here.
This is a recipe I put together from scratch, to try and clone a beer I had in Michigan on a trip. I made this recipe myself in Beersmith, and put it all together.
My stuff is all calculated to the AA% of the hops I used. So my calculated IBU's are correct. The brewer gave me the infomation that the beer is 40 IBU's that they make, and gave me the gravity they started at, as well as the ABV. This beer is no where near a bitter IPA. It's firmly planted in the Pale Ale category as far as taste. I was able to figure the grain and mash schedule, and the hop schedule was a guess. There is no other clone online for this beer, hence the reason I shared it, so others who have had it, and made it even, can add and we can perhaps nail something even closer. This recipe is extremely close, so I'm pretty happy with my first try.
I've you've brewed this recipe 4 times already, I'm impress that you've brewed it every single weekend since I posted it, considering it hasn't been up for a month yet.. I'm quite flattered, and you must have a ton of Citra on hand. I didn't copy this recipe from anywhere, there are simply no other posts about an Oddsides CPA clone. Ask a few guys here, because I've been in touch with atleast one guy here about it. So I'm not sure what recipe you are talking about at your local store, because this isn't it.
Past that, I don't quite get what you point is in this recipe thread? It's about this recipe, and people brewing the one posted, and sharing what they have from making it, or making it better or their own. I'm not trying to be rude, I'm simply not understanding what this is adding the recipe discussion, since you are probably talking about something completely different..
