Do you think just scaling it up into the IPA range and keeping the proportions the same would work?
I just got 4 ounces of Falconer's Flight yesterday and am looking for something to do with them.
Update- this has a lot of promise as an IPA. Brewed 5/17. OG was 1.068. Used 5 ounces of FF hops in the boil (1 oz every 5 min starting at 25 min). Racked t secondary on 6/4 and threw in another ounce of FF for dry hop. Aroma and flavor of the sample during transfer. It tasted of citrusy goodness, with just a hint of tropical fruit.
Will keg this weekend. I have high hopes for this beer. The malt profile Yoop put together is outstanding. I kept the proportions the same and just bumped up the amounts for increased gravity.
I may do a winter version of this and bump the mash temp up to increase the body.
