Steep 1 pound of Caravienna for 30 minutes. I added it to 3 gallons of water when the temp was 148. I turned the stove down to a 3 on the dial and it slowly rose to 170. I brought the liquid to a boil and added 6 lbs extra light DME (Northwestern). Brought it back to a boil.

.49 oz Warrior 17.2% AA
.52 oz Magnum 13% AA
.52 oz Columbus 14.5% AA
30 minute additions:
1 oz Centennial 8.8% AA
7 oz maltodextrin

After 14 days of fermentation, I dry hopped with 1 oz of Centennial Pellets 9.4% AA
I had based this beer off of Sculpin IPA from Ballast Point. It doesn't have quite the bitterness of the Sculpin IPA and has more floral aroma and flavor notes. Over all I am quite happy with this beer and will make it again (and again and again).
I love Sculpin, and I want to brew it but it has insanely lots of hop varieties which makes it very difficult for me to brew (since we do not have LHBS here). I am looking for an identical, but simpler recipe.
Their beer is Hoppocratic Oath, similar name. I came up with my name in March 2011, around the same time their beer came out. I guess great minds think alike since I had no idea about their beer until I saw your post.
