Default Brewdog Hardcore IPA clone

I wanted to take a stab at cloning Brewdog's Hardcore IPA. It is an intense beer. They describe it as an Explicit Imperial IPA. ABV coming out to around 9.2%. I did some research and this is the best clone that I could come up with. The use a massive hop rocket but I will just be dry hopping. I brewed this a couple of nights ago and the OG came out to 1.085. It is fermenting away and really needed that blowoff tube! Smells amazing! Let me know what you think

5 gallon

OG 1.084

17.5lbs Maris Otter
1.0lbs Crystal 40L

2.0oz Columbus 60-90 mins
1oz Centennial 60-90 mins
0.5oz Simcoe 60-90 mins
0.5oz Centennial 30 mins
0.5oz Simcoe 30 mins
0.5oz Centennial 10 mins
0.5oz Simcoe 10 mins
0.5oz Simcoe 5 mins
2.0oz Simcoe leaf dry hop

WLP001 California Ale Yeast

Still bubbling away. Too early to add the dry leaf hops. Can't wait to all those happy Simcoe cones in there.
