Default Dogfish Head 120 Min IPA Clone

I just finished brewing the DFH 120 Min IPA Clone recipe from homebrewchef.com and was wondering if anyone out there has tried this recipe yet. I listened to the "can you brew it" MP3 and decided to do 10 hop additions during the boil instead of the 40 in the original recipe. I think I may also cut back on the sugar some as they said the biggest difference between the clone and the original was sweetness. OG turned out to be 1.100, before the sugar of course.

If you've brewed this can you post any problems you ran into? How did you do your sugar additions? Did you use an air stone? Did you carb it? If so, how?
And most importantly, how did it turn out? How close was it to the original? Thanks!

Due to the how big of a commitment this beer is, I don't think too many people have tried to brew it. I am extremely curious how your batch turns out though.

As far as the actual brewing went it wasn't too bad. It took me about 8 hrs to brew, but most of the work is in the fermentation stage. I will keep this thread updated as to how everything goes.

My HLT & MT are both 10 gal Igloo coolers. I just scaled the recipe down to 6 gallons in Beersmith to accommodate my setup.
