I am sampling my first few bottles of this recipe and it is f-ing really good. It finished pretty dry for me so upping the mash temp a bit is the way to go. The nose and sweetness from the insane amount of hops is there as in the real thing. Color is a bit darker, but it is really a fabulous brew. Well worth brewing up if you are a hop head like I am. Gotta have this year round now, it will become a staple in my house.

This is the problem. I loved my clone so much that now that I'm down to 4 bottles my skin is itching cause I know I need to brew it again..... and it ain't cheap.

Time to go bulk, I never would have brewed it without getting cheap 50 lb sacks of two row and hops by the lb from hopsdirect.
