it pretty much is an ipa. I think it falls in the very upper end for pale ale, or the low end for ipa

Hey Dude,

I just wanted to say thanks for your incredible inspiration on what my co-workers called (until now) the "vanilla" APA.

I toyed a bit and entered my take on this recipe into the 2012 Cascade Brewers Cup in the Everett/Seattle area and got a legitimate placement in american ales, losing to a brown ale (argh, but I know it has to be AMAZING). BJCP reviews came in with great scores. Comments noted a malt backbone which was well balanced, standing up to the hops. I know toasting the malt played a really strong role in the additional flavor; I appreciate that spin on this style.

For my setup, Beersmith spat out an OG of 1.056, IBU of 46.1, finished at 1.011, so I agree that this could be a borderline IPA.

Couldn't have done this on my own, and thanks again Dude.

-B

OK, I've got this in my queue. Just a question though - why the 90 minute boil? This seems like a normal APA and I don't see a reason - but I do want to know what it is!

Thanks.

Brewed this a couple weeks ago (first time in a while) with competitions in mind. Hit my expected OG of 1.056 right on the mark, as well as my FG of 1.012. Couldn't be happier. Sample tastes outstanding.

This go around I dry hopped with 1 oz each of Simcoe and Amarillo for 6 days, removed the hops, and today I threw in a fresh 1 oz. of each that will stay another 6 days before crashing/kegging. I feel bad using 4 oz of hard to come by hops for dry hopping, but the aroma I'm going to get on this thing will be insane.

ha, I just noticed Dude's recipe says 90 minutes... I've always done 60 and it comes out great.

I got 3rd place for 10A American Ale-Pale Ale in the CARBOY Shamrock Open (Raleigh, NC) last month. I thought that was great considering my beer was a good 3-4 weeks past it's prime.
