Default Has anyone tried the "Hop Burst" Technique?

As described here. I'm going to do this on a brew Tuesday and was wondering what kind of results to expect.

Yup, pretty much standard for an hoppy American ale I make. If I have enough hops, I will add them all from 30 to 0 minutes.

Only thing I would say to expect is a nice hop flavor and aroma in you final beer. Also, there will be a lot of hop matter left in the kettle, make sure you have a good way to strain them out.

It's how I do my IPA's now, almost all under 20 minutes. I think it adds to the mouthfeel a bit as well, perhaps from the increas in hop oils.

EDIT: I have actually made a version of that beer with different hops, came out amazing.

All I do is FWH my bittering, and then everything else goes in with less that 15 minutes.

I will occasionally FWH or mash hop, but never do bittering additions any more on my IPA's.

Seems like it will dramatically increase hop consumption.....

Did it with an IPA a few years ago and took first place in a local comp with it. Incredible hop aroma and flavor.

I do lots of additions at 20 minutes or less, but I do not depend on those for bittering. It's just too inefficient.

I have been pushing the late hops up over the last few batches. It creates a big hop flavor. I have been adding gelatin to the fermenter to get the beer clear and let the hop flavor come out. I also add a bit of Koji enzyme to dry the beer out.
I make a APA that is exactly 1/2 of the malt and hops, but the same late-hop schedule. It is a great summer beer.
