My Rye ale, definitely the best recipe I've created so far.

My Coronado Imperial Red--a hop-malt monster

Eulipion's Honey Saison--brewed w/o rosemary and subbed Cascade for more citrus. I literally CANNOT stop drinking this beer!

Wait. You're not talking about beer, right?
You're talking about beer. That could have been a whole lot more fun.

My BIPA brewed with pale malt, black patent, crystal 80, chinook/amarillo/tettnanger hops, and star anise. I call it "Serious Black Ale"

I would have to say my favorite home brew that i've done to date was a version of the Darth Vader IPA

I wanted to make it alittle differnet so used 80L crystal and .75# of special roast instead of only a half pound.

I also changed up the hops and used the following schedule:

1 oz Magnum 17% - 60 min.
1 oz Cascade 7.9% - 45 min.
1 oz Fuggles 5.2% - 15 min.
1 oz Cascade 7.9% - 0 min.

Dry hop 1 oz cascade for 7 days.

And used nottingham instead of 05.

Came out amazing. Huge aroma up front, the first sip is amazingly roasty, but then the bitterness and hop flavor comes in. It was a hit, even with people that don't like hoppy beers.

My own version of Sierra Nevada Pale Ale (Bradford Pale Ale) which is Columbus, Perle and Cascade hops and comes out like this:
10 SRM
37 IBU
5.5% ABV
mellow with a somewhat malty body with a nice Cascade hop aroma and flavor, easy drinker
5.5 gal batch (OG: 1.051, FG: 1.010)
9.0 lb 2-row
1.0 lb Vienna
1.0 lb Crystal 60
0.5oz Columbus @ 60
0.5oz Perle @ 25
1.0oz Cascade @ 10
1.0oz Cascade @ flameout
1.0oz Cascade dry hop 7 days
US-05 yeast
21 day primary @ 65F

Second place would be the recent Blue Moon Clone I made which is like Blue Moon only drier and a bit more citrus...excellent summer ale!

Primary 3&4: Belgian Wit
Keg #1: White Mosaic Pale Ale
Keg #2: Empty
Drinking: Amber Ale, White Mosaic Pale Ale
