Thought I would post this, as I had to locate the recipe through Brewing Network, and I assume a lot of you HBT brewers might be interested in one of the best IPAs (IMHO) out there.

**I ended up with better efficiency than the 73% used for this BeerTools recipe, and hit 1.073. I hydrated my grain as explained in BYO a couple months back and I think that improved my numbers. The lauter was certainly more clear and quick. Also, I used whole hops, the recipe was for pellets, so I tweaked a bit to hit the 92-93 IBU target.

Here is the 6 gallon recipe from the show:

I dry hopped for 7 days in the secondary and bottled with 4.5 oz. corn sugar. After 2 weeks, took a taste of a chilled bottle. Actually, I brought some to the AHA rally at the Abita Brewery last week. The beer was simply awesome. In a side-by-side test, I could tell a slight difference mainly in the hop aroma. Other than that, everything else is the same.

Very good to hear your great results! What was it about the aroma that was different?

I think mostly it was that I found more of a Cascade aroma in mine versus more of a Simcoe/Columbus aroma in the original. I also found out something interesting recently. A "proper" pour (of course, this is subjective and probably mostly nonsense) involves pouring with the glass NOT tilted. So the beer crashes on the bottom, thereby releasing hop aromas and such (the bouquet). And it also takes away a bit of the carbonation (and most homebrews are slightly over-carbonated anyways, particularly after many months or years). If it foams too much, then just wait and continue the pour when it subsides. My first pour (when I initially tasted this beer and compared it to the original) was with the glass tilted until the very end. I have since tried the pour without tilting the glass and the aroma is different. There is much less Cascade there and more of what I smell in the original. So that was an interesting experiment!

Yeah, pretty amazing the aroma released with a direct pour. The right glass can really affect it too. The tulip style glass does a nice job of focusing the hop aroma right to your nose.

Well, mine is done and all I can say is FANTASTIC. Totally nailed it and the only difference I can detect is a slightly drier finish on my version-due most likely to the fact that I did not add the 1.31 lbs carapils as the recipe called for, I only had 8 oz.

Also, I added 1/2 the dry hops in the secondary for 1 week (whole hops), then put the other 1/2 in the keg, where they sit today. This is my new "big IPA" recipe.

It's not even a big IPA, but it comes off that way. I just killed my last pint off my keg last week. A fantastic IPA I must say.

Agreed! not a IIPA, but it sure seems like one with that over the top hop profile. A big enough IPA for me
