Does anyone have a good recipe that is similar to Dogfish's 90 or 120 min IPA's? Yooper has a 60 min. clone- and I've loved her recipes before (I think it was the Rogue Dead Guy Ale clone). But- to me- the 60 is not Super different from my current IPA's. The 90 and 120 min are so darn rich, heavy and Awesome.
If not, I'll most likely make her 60 min.- because I believe I'd agree with her when she states that she prefers hers to theirs.
Thanks!

ahs has a double IPA that is pretty tasty and has a similar rich/mouth feel to the 90min IPA. Slightly diffrent taste though.

Not only are the recipes out there for 120 minute complex (involving added syrups to achieve desired O.G) but they will set you back about $100 for a 5g batch.

I would go for the 90

Now, I've not brewed this, but I'll say that their Two-Hearted clone from the same issue was outstanding.

Good Lord! See- I'm not super surprised to hear that though- I knew it had to be Big on fermentables one way or another. Stunted Monkey's recipe does look really interesting though.
Thanks'

Here in Cbus OH the 120 is about 1 dollar per oz. when the local beer store even has it, which I have never witnessed myself. Have had the beer before (years ago), loved it.

I would be interested in a recipe for this beer - possibly in a 2 gal batch. I'd think an OG of around 1.13 would be appropriate, finishing at 1.030. Should be around 13% and take a year at least. Since some could get it locally, might they be interested in an experiment? Taste test for us and post what you think!

The hard part on these recipes is the continuous hops - you have to develop some sort of interesting contraption, or sit there and add hops every couple minutes.

Yeah, the 120 is an even ten bucks here- and one day- with a gift card in hand- I let myself pay that- just to see what the big deal was. For the first time EVER- I did not resent buying an expensive beer.(and the beer is always good, I just don't believe that you have to pay a lot to get a lot) It's like a hop-milkshake. If that sounds gross- believe me- it was not. Very prominent hop aroma, and not the overpowering bitterness that can turn me off from a lot of really decent IMP. IPA's. I never spent my Own money again- but it has become a form of currency when making assanign (sp!) bets.
And the 90 min. is my all time fav. "affordable" IPA- (and affordable is subjective- it's a $10 four pack).
With taste like this- it's a good thing I brew most of the beer I drink. Hence my looking for clones or brews with similar characteristics.

I'm guessing you mean From the Vine because that's the only place I can find it. The only time I ever bought it there I paid close to $15 for a 12oz. I did see it in Chicago for 8 bucks though (they also had 12pks of Fat Tire). Not fair!
