Recipe Type: All Grain   
Yeast: WYeast 1056 American Ale   
Yeast Starter: Regular 1.040 starter   
Batch Size (Gallons): 5.5   
Original Gravity: 1.072   
Final Gravity: 1.014   
IBU: 78+   
Boiling Time (Minutes): 90   
Color: 14.65   
Primary Fermentation (# of Days & Temp): 21   
Secondary Fermentation (# of Days & Temp): 7   
Tasting Notes: Phenomenal. Perfect blend of malt and hops. Probably the best IIPA I've ever had.   

Called it my Barely Legal IIPA because @ 7.6% and the SRM almost going above the limit, it barely scratches the marks for an IIPA.

Style: IIPA/American (I)IPA

Mash @ 153-154 for 60-75 minutes
Sparge @ 170 for 10-15 minutes
Boil for 90 minutes.
I'd suggest getting some paint strainer bags for the hops.

12lbs Briess 2-row
12.8oz Caramel 60
12.8oz Carapils
6.4oz Caramel 120
6.4oz Caramel Munich
4oz Breiss Victory

90 minute boil

1oz Chinook MashHop
1oz Chinook @ 60
2oz Centennial @ 15
2oz Cascade @ 5
2oz Cascade @ 0 (flameout)

Ferment for 14-21 days, rack to secondary (or leave in primary- doesn't matter too much) add:

1oz Chinook dryhop for 7 days
1oz Centennial dryhop for 7 days
1oz Cascade dryhop for 7 days







Best beer I've brewed so far

I actually do not own beersmith, so I'm not sure on the IBU's. If someone wants to punch in the numbers and let me know, that'd be awesome. I think it may be around 88?

Thanks, the pictures are @ only 2 weeks in the bottle. Those pictures were from the very first bottle opened and poured. After 4 weeks, the flavors balance out a little more (a wonderful marriage). Here is a pic @ 4 weeks in the bottle (same stuff):

I definitely wouldn't mind trying this out, but im not converted over to all grain yet. Can anyone convert this to a partial, or extract recipe?

Sadly, I'm terrible at conversions. I'd love if someone could convert the recipe to a Partial Mash. Also, this is a more or less recent picture of the beer after it cleared a bit:
