I just did a side by side( yeah 2009 SNCA made it to Florida) and it is as good as the original
Planning a porter and IPA brewday on Sat and have a new bag of Chinook, Cent and some Cascade from the last hops order. I'm going to craft my IPA after this clone. May add some Citra to this hops schedule. Thanks.

My best lately seems to be the latest. I'm 1 year into this hobby and the batches from this summer to the present are preferable to just about any craft brew. I'll still buy a sixer a week for a broad selection, but they are starting to accumulate in my beer fridge. A Loose Cannon clone a few batches back has been the best hands down. The hops were not perfectly done to match Loose Cannon, but it was so good, I had a hard time keeping myself to 24 oz on weekday evenings.

I would have to say my Oktoberfest that is on tap. It was my first lager and 3rd all grain. I am not sure if it will remain my favorite purely from being the best, but I could see it remaining a strong favorite, simply because it was the largest step change in quality/taste with my homebrewing so far IMHO.

My favorite so far, was probably my Amarillo IPA DH'd with Amarillo/Simcoe. But my All-Centennial IPA is right up there. Tastes almost identical to Two Hearted. I'll have to do a side-by-side soon. I've been trying to let it age, and only treat myself to one here and there. I love hops, but am also looking forward to coming up with some more complex malty recipes! Definitely haven't developed the Oak or Smoked palette yet.

Really need to make that Lake Walk Pale Ale sometime.
Fermenting/Conditioning: Casc/Cent APA, Hoppy Birthday Amarillo/Simcoe IPA(6g American/5g Belgian), Chappist Belgian Dubbel
Bottled/Kegged: Red Rye IPA, Wesside Trip(Westmalle Tripel clone), ESB, Lil Trap (4% Trappist Starter Batch), Robust (Pumpkin) Porter, 3% Little Hopper, "Slick Rick" Old Engine Oil Clone(oaked w/ vanilla and balvenie scotch), Imperial RyePA,
On Deck: Quad, Belgian IPA, Orfy's Mild, Scotch Ale

The best beer I made was my first one: A russian imperial stout from an extract kit. I brewed it last Dec 26th. Its just tasting good now.

I've only got a few batches under my belt, but Yooper's DFH 60 min clone turned out amazing.
