Made another batch of this today. Got some fresh Zeus and Centennial hops from Freshhops. I cannot begin to tell you how good it smelled cooking! This is quickly becoming my most brewed recipe!

I used this recipe as a base for an extract version, and it turned out great. Just tried the first bottle yesterday after 1-1/2 weeks of conditioning.

7.5 lbs. american light liquid extract (I used William's for this. Their american light is very light and clean. No extract twang. Great base extract)
.75 lbs. munich liquid extract

steeped 1/2 lb. crystal 15, and 1/2 lb. crystal 40 at 155 for 30 minutes.

I followed the hop schedule given in the original post (I used a full boil, started with 5.5 gals water).

I used Wyeast American Ale II with a small starter, and fermented at 68-69.

This batch was just a touch (not much really) darker, and sweeter than mad hatter, but that's how I like higher IBU IPA's. Try Wyeast 1056, and lower fermentation temp for a slightly dryer/cleaner finish. Could also drop the crystal 40, and use all 10 or 15 instead to lighten a bit. I used the 40/15 combo to try to replicate the carapils/caramunich combo the author posted. I've heard conflicting opinions on how to best utilize carapils and caramunich, but many indicate that a mash is best.

Anyway, use this as you will. It made for one of the best IPA's I've ever had. Very well balanced.

Solid recipe IMO, it has been awhile since I Mad Hatter, I have no comparison, but as far as IPA's go; Brew it.

Opinion (on this recipe): Nice American IPA, good backbone has some malt, hopped nicely - not for the weak at heart but not over the top. Good Balance.

I should be in tasting region this summer for the original, but as I taste this recipe I think you should punt the the clone title and pull your own on this one.

Cheers!

I think this will be my next batch. Any preference for using Zeus over Columbus?

Well, Zeus wasn't an option so I stuck with Columbus. However, Centennial also wasn't an option, so I decided to try Bravo. I could have went with Chinook but I never tried Bravo, I'll see how it turns out.
