Recipe Type: All Grain   
Yeast: US-05   
Yeast Starter: Rehydrated Dry   
Additional Yeast or Yeast Starter: N/A   
Batch Size (Gallons): 6   
Original Gravity: 1070   
Final Gravity: 1016   
IBU: 98   
Boiling Time (Minutes): 90   
Color: 9.6   
Primary Fermentation (# of Days & Temp): 16 days @ 67   
Additional Fermentation: N/A   
Secondary Fermentation (# of Days & Temp): N/A   
Tasting Notes: Aroma is like having your head in a bag of oranges. So drinkable.   

14.5# American Two Row
1.3# Cara-Pils
1.3# Crystal 40
.50# Munich

Mash for 60 minutes at 152. 90 minute boil.

Hop Additions:

90 Min- .50 oz Chinook (11.5% AA)
.50 oz Simcoe (12% AA)

60 Min- .25 oz Chinook
.25 oz Simcoe

30 Min- .25 oz Chinook
.25 oz Simcoe

15 Min- .75 Simcoe
.75 Chinook
.50 Amarillo (11.5%)

10 Min- 1 oz. Cascade (5.8%)

O Min- .50 Chinook
.75 Simcoe

Dry Hop- 2 oz. Amarillo
1.5 oz. Cascade
.5 oz Chinook


1 oz. of American Medium Toast Oak Cubes is added at the same time you pitch your yeast. I did this the first time as an experiment and man I think it makes a contribution in smoothness and just enough of a hint in the taste.

I did it the second time and got the same great results again. I only let it sit on the oak for 14-17 days until I'm ready to package the beer. Dry hops were all added to the primary after 7 days or obvious fermentation had settled down.

This recipe is based on the Green flash West Coast IPA on the Brewing Network "Can you Brew It" show. I changed around the hop schedule and made some additions and I can't get enough of this beer.

I've brewed it twice now and it is extremely drinkable. I brew a lot of IPA's but this is by far my favorite. The aroma is SO orange and citrusy. That's why I'm being a dork and calling it fresh squeezed.

If you give this one a try, you won't be disappointed.

Pretty pumped. This recipe just took Best of Show and a People's Choice award in a competition yesterday! If you're an IPA person, you have to try it.

This might be a silly question, but do you know what elements the chinook add? Are you using them to offset the citrus of the Amarillo/Cascade? I have all the ingredients but the cara-pils & chinook at the moment, thinking maybe I could use all simcoe in place of the chinook for a bit of pine element?

It's just a hop that I love and it kind of has it's own quality but I'm sure you could sub simcoe and get a good result. Like you said, it will be a bit more piney but that might go nice here.

The key is really the aroma additions and the big dry hop. I haven't brewed it without the oak yet but I'm going to continue using it because I want this beer to keep coming out the same every time. Good luck!

This is REALLY similar to the Chicamarillo I made, except without the Simcoe additions. It was my best brew yet...I'll have to make some slight modifications and try this out. The oak sounds kind of odd in an IPA, but I guess I'll have to try it...I'm ok with a hint of oak.

The cascade, amarillo, chinook combo is glorious!! Rebrew is underway! Thanks for sharing.

Edit: congrats on taking best of show! Also I think the chinook adds another dimension of citrus, and really ties the cascade and amarillo together. I'm sure simcoe is great in the dry hop also, but I think Chinook is pretty important in the flavor/aroma profile!

Any idea what IBU was. I''m inspired by this hop schedule, but this seems like IBU would be very high. Modeling a high hopped RyePA after a similar hop profile?

Oops, just saw you list it at 98IBU. What did you use to calc?

Boy, this looks like a great recipe! May have to try this one next. I love the way a little Chinook adds a dimension to some of the other Citrus hops, like Amarillo.

Lately I've been adding a tiny bit of Willamette(not much) to increase complexity. Wonder if it would work here, as well?
