Named after Minnesota's own WineHaven, where our clover honey originates, this citrusy Imperial IPA ferments dry and fresh, allowing the honey malt to leave a sweet finish to an otherwise hop forward beer. It smells of orange and lemon, and leaves a slight grapefruit pucker on the tongue. Big bubbles and strong lacing reminds you that the 8% ABV is present, but fans of the style will enjoy our HopHaven Double IPA.

Estimated: 267 calories per 12 oz.

Looks like I have a plan for Saturday now!

Cool! Let me know how it turns out!

Don't forget to make a starter, we had about a 2 liter starter and the yeast cut right through the sugar.

The first time we brewed this we went from grain to glass in about 4 weeks. Fermented for 1.5 weeks, dry hopped for 1 week, and kegged for 1 week.

This looks delicious, I'm really bumming out having so much trouble getting my hands on a good amount of Amarillo. It seems I can find Am when Sim is out, and Sim when Am is out, never fails.

Anyhow, just linking this into my reply topics so I can fall back on it later, looks like a great beer, thinking though I'll sub out the extract for maybe Otter and take it AG, been on a big MO kick lately. I'll post back if / when I brew it, thanks for sharing - cheers!

Just got off the phone with my homebrew store and it sounds like they have all of the leaf and pellet that I need. He suggested trying the next batch with the WLP090 (San Diego Super), but I don't really see any need to push the fermentation any faster. Any thoughts?

I wouldn't push it any faster, but make sure you are pitching enough. Our FG dropped to 1.010 pretty quickly, but for some reason our SG was off. I think we may have had some bad extract, so YMMV.

We're brewing this again soon, probably an all-grain conversion, so I'll be sure to check back with updates.

Cheers! :mug:

I'm a long way off from being able to make this, but it looks & sounds like it is right up my alley!

I'm sorry for the stupid question but in new to this, is that 12lbs of grain or extract?

Sorry for the confusion, I've since created the all-grain version of this for my next brew, but I forgot I linked it here.

I'll specify that the link is all-grain, but the extract recipe above is the exact recipe we brewed the first time.
