Pilar Ale (Wet Hopped Arrogant Bastard Clone)
After I brewed this, I was actually really surprised at how close it was in a side by side comparison with Arrogant Bastard. The color and mouthfeel are identical. The hop flavor/aroma is more pronounced in my version, which is to be expected with the massive wet hop addition, late in the boil. I've tried dry hopping, but I try to turn this beer around rather quickly because of the wet hops and I get great aroma without them. Not an exact clone, but definitely an Arrogant Bastard inspired beer. I brew this every fall, with freshly harvested Chinook Hops.
