Just tapped the keg two days ago and I can say this is by best beer to-date. I haven't done a side-by-side test but I will tonight. Beautiful pine aroma with herbal/floral notes. It is a bit cloudy but that is OK.

Rebrewed this batch with 0.25 oz more Simcoe @ 15 minutes and took it to the Austin Zealots monthly tasting. Reception was overwhelmingly positive with multiple recipe requests. Tasters were very surprised to discover it was a partial-mash brew.

Updated recipe on hopville.

Definitely will brew again but I'm unsure if I'll modify it any further. I may experiment with different yeasts and different fermentation temperatures. A wonderfully solid American IPA without being a hop-bomb. Should please IPA-lovers and those who don't usually enjoy IPA's alike!

I may try converting the recipe to all-grain but like grandpa always says, "If it aint' broke, don't fix it!"

i brewed something similar recently, except i did AG, used a bit less sugar, and FWH .75oz simcoe and put .25 at 15 min and just sprinkled a few willamette pellets in every once in a while.

its carbonating now, but it seemed to be pretty good, not too much like Ranger, but still good, and with a similar hop flavor

Your figures are too high for this beer.

Should be 1.058-1.060 OG / 1.008-1.009 FG with 70 IBUs--some of which are lent by the flameout addition.
Ferm temp. should also be in the mid 60s.

Check it out for a smaller batch:

Muntons XL DME is my go-to extract, but you could use a smaller amount of Briess if desired. Be careful though because the PPG/L ratings are different.
