3 oz of hops isn't anywhere near enough for a hopbursted IPA. Need probably double that.

Also, Mt Hood as your main flavor hop is pretty unusual & won't give you the kind of flavor we usually think of as an IPA. Not that it'll be bad, just won't taste like an IPA.

Finally, mash low -- you want you FG to be down around 1.015 or below.

I brewed up Evil Twin this weekend and it called for a total of 5 oz. of hops over the course the last 20 minutes with 4 of them being in the last 10 minutes. Heretic Brewing does this same beer and it's got HUGE aroma and flavor. Smooooth bitterness too. Hop bursting FTW.

i saw the mt hood on another popular rye IPA recipe so I thought it would be good with the rye malt ... any other suggestions for a rye beer's hops ??

this is a 3.5 gallon recipe and I like my IPAs around 60 IBUs so I thought it was enough hops ... did you see it was 3.5 gallons ??

thatnks for the thoughts ... i need the help .. as I am still a Noob

Looks like a scaled down version of my recipe....I've made it with all late additon hops a few times, but it never seemd to have the "hop punch" I like in the beer. The bitterness was too subdued and mellow for my tastes.

Looks good, but I would up the late hop additions as well. Just brewed a CDA with 15.5oz of hops added after the 15 minute addition mark.


Also I'm extra jealous you have found Ruthless. I live < 200mi away from Chico and I still can't find it...

yea ... i guess it is pretty much your recipe ... I just swapped the bittering hops to nugget .... maybe this isn't the beer to try hop bursting on I guess ... I'm on the fence now ... thanks for the thoughts !!!

well as soon as you can get your hands on some, do it ... I like it better than celebration ... just a very balanced beer ... BTW, I think celebration was more bitter this year than last ... probably just my taste buds .. who knows ... cheers !!

Ruthless was pretty tasty- like Torpedo with Rye! I'll keep an eye on this thread to see how the recipe turns out.
