Cool thanks. I'll post in the "recipes" forum once I start pulling it together, to keep this thread on topic!

Lots of hops can give a floral finish. Cascade is a good one. Amarillo, Centennial are others. There are lots of good ones.

The American IPAs are usually really excessively hopped. They have a clean yeast character like an APA, but a freakin ton of hops. Bittering hops, dry hops, flavor hops. I'd get some Columbus for bittering and Cascade for finish. Use lots of Cascade towards the end of the boil

Sam, I got the Anchor Porter (individual only) at World Market, but the Farm Fresh over on Bethel (by the AMC theater) is where I get the rest of the Anchor stuff. They have sixers of Steam and Liberty. I'm sure most Farm Fresh selections are similar, but I don't know.
Those are both great beers, and two of my all time faves. Very drinkable--meaning not too heavy and something you could drink all night.

Rightwing, I'd go Anchor Liberty, Sierra Pale, and Tupper in that order, but Tupper being #3 certainly doesn't take anything away from the fact that its a great beer.
Did you try the Brown yet? I can't wait for your critique. I won't be upset if you didn't like it--I realize all tastes are different. I tried to improve on the latest batch of brown ale I did by boiling some bittering hops longer, as I thought that first batch could have been hoppier. Once I transfer this latest to secondary I'm gonna dry-hop for the first time as well. So what'd ya think?

Sorry, man, I didn't get to it yet...I kept forgetting it at home, and I spend most of my time (and all of my drinking) at my girlfriend's house. Will try it this week. Sending mine tomorrow...I procrastinated and the post office was closed...Pulled the stout out of the fridge to age more...I wonder if the fact that it was chilled will screw up the aging...it was ice cold when it arrived, anyway....

What is it that gives the American style that more floral character over the traditional IPA's? I'm trying to get a recipe together for an IPA, so I could use some ideas.

If you can get a hold on some Great Lakes Burning River APA do it, that seems to fit the description of what your looking for

Ok, Orr, tried your brown ale. Honestly, it was OK. At first sip, the finish had a tangy bitterness I didn't like, but it got better. It's got that same basic taste that mine have that I don't like much....I guess it's an extract thing. Drinkable, but not great. I'll probably like the stout better, as I like my porter better. We'll see.

Hmmm....I find it extremely drinkable and it was everything I wanted when I started this hobby. I'm tweaking that recipe in a batch right now--with plans to make that a regular house brew. As I said before--I think it could have been hoppier.

As for that stout--I'm not holding out much hope. I thought it was way too sweet for my tastes. We'll see how it ages.

Yeah, hey, maybe I was off...it usually takes me a beer or two to like a new beer...they always taste funny at first...Or maybe I have horrible taste in beer...or maybe you do... Mine aren't too great...you'll have a chance to rag on them soon.

Okay rightwing....Sam and I tried your brews the other night....

The Porter was great. Extremely drinkable. It reminded me very much of Yeunglings Porter, so good job! You got great color on that porter too, something I wasn't able to do as well with my stout....
The other one--I thought was really sweet, and I guess I wasn't expecting that. I tasted brown sugar, did you prime with that or something? Interesting if you did. I couldn't narrow down what type it was--maybe a mild APA or a Brown? If you told me what they were, I'm sorry, I couldn't remember. I would have like it better without the sweetness but if that's what you were going for, cool...which one was your first batch?

Sam had one of my brown ales and he said he thought it tasted grainy...I'm not sure what that meant....

I wish we all lived closer so we could sample more often. Sending 2 beers to each other is like buying an expensive 6 pack!!! Gets pricey for 2 beers!

Anyway...thanks for the samples....this hobby is really cool....
