I had a bomber of this last night in support of my Texas Rangers ( ) and I have to say, it was awesome. I was expecting SSR in a different bottle but I found the 15th much more to my liking. A slight roast/coffee flavor with citrus punch, it was one smooth IPA. I have been searching all morning and havent found a recipe online anywhere and was wondering I was just missing it?

If it hasnt been cloned yet lets get to work!!!

From what I've read it's basically described as a bigger/bolder Sublimely Self-Righteous. So, for constructing a clone I would take a look at that recipe and note the percentages and hopping schedule and perhaps use it as an outline for constructing a recipe based on this information.

Here is info on the recipe for Sublimely...

Hope this helps.

The above link to the stone blog had all the ingredients listed:

Vital stats: 10.8% abv, 100 IBUs
Malt Bill: Pale Malt, Cara-Bohemian, Carafa III Special, and Chocolate Malt
Hops Bill: Columbus (bittering), Citra (flavor/aroma). Dry-hopped with Nelson Sauvin and Pacific Jade.

I am unsure of % for the malts, maybe somethign like this?
80% 2-row
12% carbohemian (no clue about this - read it can be used for up to 15%)
5% chocolate
3% carafa III

For the hops something like:
60 min columbus
20-10-5 citra
dry hop NS and PJ?

This is just a total shot in the dark hoping the more experienced brewers and those that have tried it can can help. Once we come up with a solid idea ill give it a brew

5% chocolate
5% carafa III

I've heard some negative things about the CaraBohemian at my LHBS. Obviously it's used successfully in Stone 15, but swapping it for some Special B wouldn't hurt.
