Now that this beer is out again and I have fallen in love with it, any updates here?

I just got a bottle of this in a build my own 6 pack and now I'm kicking myself for only getting one! This is a fantastic beer!

How did this clone turn out? Seems it has been a while since the posting. I am interested...and brewing a very similar recipe...but not for a Lagunita's clone.

I emailed the brewery also and the head brewer replied that the hops are Chinook, Simcoe, Apollo, Summit, Nugget, and HBC342. He said the adjuncts should be used in high enough proportion to make lautering difficult.

That is such an interesting grain bill, I just may have to try it out (when my supply of IPA is running low – currently between 15-20 gallon left!).

Even though that FG looks a little high, it’s pretty standard for Lagunitas to mash at a high temperature so its expected. Gotta give credit to them because anytime my FG is above 1.017 in an IPA it just tastes way to malty. They are able to still get that crisp hoppy taste somehow, must be their water or something!

Subscribed for updates and reminding me of a future brew.

Me too! Mariano's has it for $9.99 to build your own. Should go back and get 6 of them at that price!

Well hell.... I am going to have to get a growler of this tomorrow.
Seems like a crowd pleaser.

This beer tastes better when it comes in a Wookey Jack bottle.

I had this beer last week on tap at The Porter, in Little 5 Points, Atlanta.. what a great pub, amazing selection...

This was an awesome beer, was not over powering at all on the bitterness but tons of hop aroma and flavor. IPAs are my fav and I've tasted many, but I prefer if they are not too bitter and favor the aroma and flavor of hops more. This one must be from more late additions, which is where my question comes in. I'm going to try the hopville recipe in this thread (http://hopville.com/recipe/1480722) to see how it goes. In the recipe it has 4 oz of late additions at 30 minutes post boil. I've added at flameout and of course dry hopped, but where do you add 30 minutes post boil? That's right about the time I am done chilling and starting to transfer to primary, so should I just put them in the primary and transfer onto them? I would think then primary for 7-10 days and probably transfer to secondary (i know big debate on this i'm still secondarying most of my beers). Then after a couple weeks in the secondary transfer to keg and do the dry hopping there while it carbs for a couple weeks. thoughts?
