So the feedback I've received so far on this iteration has been great. The Rakau hopping and slightly different grainbill gives it a flavor similar to Three Floyds' Dreadnaught.

While this was well received at the brew club, some thought it a bit too sweet. I agreed. 158 is pretty high for a mash temp.

I just used the base recipe to make an IPA using Magnum for bittering and Galaxy and Nelson Sauvin for the late additions. Mashed at 152, though.

I definitely agree. I went down to 152 on the second batch of this. I would even consider a 148 mash temp for the next version.

Mine finished at 1.020. 74% attenuation, which is solid for S-04. I just kegged it. Nelson Sauvin and Galaxy are a terrific combination. Very unique and tasty IIPA.

I made this a few months ago and it is tasting great right now in the keg. One observation I have: it cleared out really well, but when I dry hopped with the 2 ounces of simcoe in the secondary it clouded back up. It's got quite a bit of hop haze, but quite frankly that is fine by me, since most of my ipa's are usually so clear.

I've dry hopped with simcoe as part of the dogfish 60 minute clone and never had that problem, so I was sort of surprised - but I guess 2 ounces is quite a bit!

I'll post a pic tonight if I can remember. It's like drinking a flower, I love it...it is very smooth for its high alcohol content.

I brewed this up on my birthday weekend (July 27) and split the hops, half Simcoe half Nelson Sauvin. The o.g was 1.092 and f.g was 1.022. About 76% attenuation with S-04 after 6 weeks, 9%abv. I really like it! Several people who appreciate IPA's have also quite enjoyed it, though I did get one negative. That person is pretty much a "beer should taste cold" kinda guy though. Great recipe I will brew again for sure.

I brewed this a while ago and I do agree 158 is high
I would have no problem dropping the mash temp down to 156-152

Just another plug for the Galaxy/Nelson Sauvin combo. I used Magnum for bittering and eased off on the bittering addition a bit. One of the best and most unique IIPA's I've ever had. This seems like a great base for a IIPA.

I recently got a hold of 2 pounds of simcoe. I have always loved the double simcoe by weyer, so fi.ding this recipe has me very excited. I am going to brew this isln a couple of days. I plan on using the original recipe listed, however I am doing a 10 gallon natch and will be adding.a small amount, probably .25# of whole wheat to give it a bit.more body and stronger mouth feel. I am stoked to brew this, more updates to.come!
