Thanks, sounds like it came out pretty darn good!

Thanks humann, I brewed this on 1/28 and kegged on 2/11. I'm drinking it as I type this and....wow! It looks and tastes spot-on!

Again, thanks for the recipe humann!

I entered this one in my first AHA qualifying comp. (14b American IPA) and thought I'd share.

I made it into the finals, no ribbon though and with over 70 IPA entries, I was happy to get that far and receive feedback from the judges.

This beer scored:
-3/3 with all judges for Appearance
-4/5 for three judges and 5/5 for one judge on Mouthfeel
-7/12 average for Aroma
-14/20 average for Flavor
-7/10 average for Overall Impression

Some noted a slight paper taste and suspected oxidation. I am wondering if this was from bottling from the keg??? The more I think about it, I sure of it because they sat for two weeks in the bottles before being judged. I was careful, but did it with a picnic tap and wand. hummmm???If they only could have pulled a pint from my keg I bet I'd had a ribbon.

Here are some comments:

"Clear copper -nice, good retention"
"more of a high-alcohol pale ale that an IPA"
"well balanced hop/malt bill"
"more late hopping suggested"
"nice all around palate taste, hoppy forefront drops to malt after. nice abv."
"highly drinkable but a bit old based on the aroma"
"less hops mid boil and more at the beginning"
"looking for more pungent American hops in the dry hop"

From a BJCP Grand Master II : "Some paper, earthy (moderate) with some beadings and biscuit aroma. no dms. a touch of alcohol. Too mild, overall for the style".

Very nice, this sounds pretty typically, I mean this is a very nice, tasty IPA, but not over the top, this is a good almost session IPA if you actually brew it to 1.060 gravity.

I'm glad I found this thread! I was at RR back in June and actually liked Blind Pig more than Pliney. (OK, you may all ridicule me now, but everyone has their own taste). I just went to the LHBS to get everything for a 10gallon batch. The only thing is they didn't have Amarillo Gold, so I'm just going with more Centennial. I might have some Amarillo at home but I'm not sure. Either way I'm pretty excited about it.

you could probably sub cascade too, or just mix cascade/centennial to muttle up the mixture and blur the substitute with 2 hops that are kinda close.

Did you end up brewing this SlowFro? How did it turn out?
