Default RedHook Long Hammer IPA Clone?

Does anyone have a Long Hammer IPA Clone? I have looked in the recipe database and the clone recipe books/mags and I could not find one.

Thanks

I think it's good for a 'grocery store' IPA, but JohnA111 is right. It's not a real high gravity brew, but IPA's arean't meant to be high abv.

According to the Red Hook Site, this one has an OG of 1.058, is 6.51% abv (so the FG is then 1.009 or so- 86% attenuation!), carries 38.5 IBU which come from Northern Brewer, Willamette, and Cascade hops, and uses 2-row, Crystal (no specification), and Munich in the grain bill.

Really? I thought that was one of the 'goals' of the original brewers when trying to make a beer that would make the trip from England to India.

Higher hops acting as a presrvative and higher alcohol content to also help in preservation?

Just what I've read on the origin of the style. I of course could be wrong.
Not 'correcting you' just questioning if what I understand is wrong.

I think it depends on what we each classify as 'high abv'. to me that's something 7.5% or higher. An IPA is typically below that. ANything higher and you're getting into IIPA territory.

You are correct in your thoughts regarding the origins of the style.

Ah, ok. I didn't know there was such a thing as an 'IIPA'. I just assumed IPAs run high ABV than your typical Pale Ale, so I counted it as having a higher ABV. But I agree, it is whatever one classifies as high.

Rather than spouting off your opinions on the beer, can anyone actually help this guy craft a clone?

I for one, enjoy Longhammer from time to time, so am interested to hear an answer.

In the spirit of keeping this thread on track, here's my shot in the dark. It's simply based on the above info and a little experience. I don't know how closely it will compare with Longhammer, but I bet it'll make a fine IPA.
