Gotta recommend the Dude's SNCA clone. It turned out awesome, and absolutely crystal clear. It's so good, you could drink it year round. I might try this one next.

Gotta love those night shifts. Nothing like scrubbing pots and pans out in the driveway at 0400, half drunk, with Steve Miller playin' in the background.

I'm getting a little druck on Lake Walk right now. This is one of the better beers I've brewed. If it hadn't finished so dry, it'd be THE best beer I've made. As it is, it's a little thin on body. I probably mashed a little low. No worries, I can drink it all night!

Mine alwys finishes really dry too. I mashed at 153 on the last batch and it was better. I also need to dry hop the latest one one more time.

...and for a real score:

Appearance: 7
Mine's still cloudy, mostly because it needs to settle a bit - if it were clear, any lost points would be made up. Nice frothy white head with good lacing. Wonderful golden color.

Aroma: SOLID 10!

This beer smells heavenly. The Simcoe, Amarillo, and Cascade hops work VERY well together. Simcoe dominates the aroma with that signature pineapple overtone, but grapefruit and orange are quite prominent as well. Just a hint of malty goodness in the background.

Flavor: 8.5

Just a little thin, but that allows the hops to shine. Pineapple and grapefruit dominate with a slight grassiness on the finish. The flavor is sweet, strong, and citrus up front, a little malty in the middle, and a touch dry and bitter on the finish. Balance tips the scales a little on the hoppy/bitter side, but I like that.

Mouthfeel: 6

Carbonated at 2.5 volumes - works nicely. Just a little too thin. A higher mash temp, a bit more light crystal malt, or some maltodextrin would be welcome.

Overall drinkability: 9
This is easily one of the best American pale ales that I've ever had. Sessionable for sure, but it keeps your interest with the complex hop notes. Great beer!

SCORE: 40.5

I am interested in trying this recipe based on the reviews. I have never used this yeast. Has anyone substituted it for this recipe? Is it readily available? How would it differ from say Wyeast 1272?

Thanks in advance
KD

Funny you say that, I was just plugging this all into BeerSmith and it's quoting me 61.1 IBU - are you using leaf or pellet hops? I may need to adjust for that, I use pellet.

Can't wait to try this soon!! Thanks for the recipe!
