On tap now, and loving it. Beautiful caramely-reddish hue, and the aroma is heavenly, lots of sweet apple, honey, pear, pineapple in the nose, with just enough bitterness and maltiness to balance out in the finish.

I had to switch the dryhop based on what I had in stock, I went with 0.5oz Amarillo and 1.0oz Centennial, dryhopped for 28 days.

My wife is really loving it too, as it's fruity, hoppy and flavorful, but it's not your traditional American IPA dry bitter bomb.

I'm going to do this one next! But at 1.060. With 007.

I'm psyched!

How about a pound or two of rye malt, or even rye Crystal malt???

I just bottled this yesterday, I think this is going to be good, started at 1.079, finished at 1.020, used WLP 007.

Very excited, I'll be tasting it in about 3 weeks...

Just added my dry hop hops. Took a hydro sample and am at .019. Sample tasted great

So I got a little ahead of myself and tasted after two weeks, it was not as carbonated as it needs to be yet....

One thing I have to say right off the bat is mine seriously lacks any punch with regards to the hops. The hop charactor is very weak in both flavor and aroma...

I'm wondering if this is because my water is fairly soft, but wow I'm just so dissappointed as I'm quite sure the beer is not going to get any hoppier.

I also tasted a slight "soapy" taste to the beer. This could be part of the beer being green, I can't be sure until I let it sit for a few more weeks. This may also have to do with excessive amounts of cascade hops, as I used it for all the amarillo in this recipe. I'm still researching the soapy taste.

Made this on July 3, 2012. One of the best beers I've brewed to date. Some slight tweaks:

- Mashed at 154 degrees
- Used two packs of safale 05

Original gravity was 1.068, final gravity was 1.014. I was going for a little less malty and think it came out great.

Thanks for recipe!

I am making this today as OP did but on my "The Electric Brewery" clone and adjusted for my efficiency. Will post how it turns out.

I brewed this. And man, I must say it's good beer. Quite like the description, this is an IPA that knows it's an IPA.

Mine looked more like some Mississippi brewing water was used, but I swear that the rest of my brews can used to read through! I'm sure it was from my excessive dry hopping with pellet hops. None the less, I'll be putting this beer back in line behind the other IPA's on my to-brew list.
Thanks BM.

I thought this would be a great beer for a small batch cask conditioned beer, which I still do. But after reading all the positive comments, I think I will have to do this straight up! Maybe I can tap off a gallon or two and take it down cask condition path.
