Has anyone ever done Northern Brewer's Hopbursted IPA? It claims 9.2%ABV and around 120 IBU with a pound of hops. Sounds interesting anyone try it? What's it like?

I haven't tried it, but I've heard bad things.

I plan to do it on a few weeks and I'm looking forward to it. I've read through most of the threads pertaining to this batch and it appears that most people have made the same mistake and that is under pitching the yeast and not accounting for about one gallon of lost due to all the hops. I'll let you know how it turns out in November. Not sure what thread this is under but I'll be doing the all grain batch with two packs of American Ale II instead of the 1055

You might want to consider a starter. Using JZ's calculator you'll need 3 packs without a starter at 1.085

1250 ml with two packs is the route I'll be going. I think most that have done this beer weren't ready to brew a high grav beer from what I've read.
