Thanks. I narrowed it to (in my mind) the three best. I'm sure I'll enter more next year. We'll see!

You just have to hope your mind is like the judges now, and that everyone else's beers suck!  ;D ;D


;D

No we can't have that lol. I have two in Indy!

Since you bought a blue cooler, it will correct itself for your next brew!

lol... yeah, I'd bet on the flaked barely with that thin of a grain bed.

Looks good. Adding a length of tubing to your barb will actually help it run better. Just saying.

Yeah, that gravity works in mysterious ways

Ok. I'm drinking this beer again now. No cinnamon. However, I think that pleasant noticery is due to a combination of many things. The pungient dank resinous of the present hops combined with the relatively sweet malt bill cause a ever so slightly sweet spice taste on the lips. It could be enhanced by the great mouthfeel caused by 1450.

Just so you know, this beer is $$$

Ok. The like Jon said, you'll want more cascade than Citra if you want to find it. if you just want Citra to be layered with another dimension, I'd go 1:1. If you want to be able is distinguish the cascade, I would go 2:1 if not 5:2 cascade to Citra. Id probably split the difference in order to mesh them together at a ratio of 3:2 cascade to Citra.

I know it's not really what you're asking, Citra and galaxy in equal parts is my favorite combo. Investigate that direction before making a decision.

Funny Frank, this thread, and maybe your comment, got me to pick up a 6er of Pineapple Sculpin this afternoon

Been wanting to try that but still can't bring myself to spend $15 on a six pack. I suppose it is a lot cheaper than going to the bar and only 50% more than I would spend on a normal six pack. You've convinced me. Thanks!

I just had it in a bottle this afternoon. It has a smoother feel and better with it on tab. But go figure, that's the case with about 85%. I like this better than Grapefruit sculpin. Not that I don't dislike grapefruit sculpin? It's just tough to differentiate between it and regular sculpin to me lol.

Grapefruit Sculpin comes in cans, I hope this will too!

I didn't think I'd ever do this and by thinking on this thread and drinking Ballast point pineapple, I think I might try a pineapple IPA. I have a habanero/mango APA to brew first. I created the recipe for that two years ago and have never gotten to it. I have an IIPA up next, and Hab/mango on deck. But I think over the summer, a pineapple IPA sounds good. I'm thinking a 1.070 gravity range. I'll probably bitter clean with warrior. Then finish it hard with Citra/meridian/Azacca or something similar. Ferment it with 001. Look to rack it on 3-5 lb of puréed pineapple in the secondary. Then, of course, dry hop.

I get a full, round mouthfeel from it but not an underattenuated, overly malty character.

This is more of what I can describe as far as mouthfeel goes.

Same here.

Kinda like that "wow, that's a mouth full of beer" feel

Hmmm. I'll need to taste harder next time. I'll post a pic of it here in a handful of days. I just pulled the dry hops so it'll need to clear out.

Hop combo it equal parts simcoe, Columbus, centennial, and Equinox at FW, whirlpool, and dry hop. The grist is 49% two row, 49% Munich, and 2% C120.

I'm sure I'll try again tonight. It wasn't a bad thing. It was just different and very faint.

So I just tapped my imperial hoppy Amber tonight. This was the first time I've used 1450. The hops are hoppy as ever. I don't get a heavier maltiness to it like people say, but I do get a heavier mouthfeel that essentuates the malt greatly. Pretty much what I expected. The one odd think is, is that I pick up the the ever so slightest hint of  cinnamon on the back end. Please tell me I'm normal for catching this, or you can just say that I'm smoking rocks too. Id rather be normal because crack is whack.

Yeah, you get 4 bottles of Dark Lord plus a rare variant of dark lord. You get a tote with $40 in food and drink vouchers. Basically, if you bought everything last year, you would be paying the same. Now there's just no cash exchange and lines move more quickly.

Tickets go on sale Saturday at noon for 2016 DLD. They're using an all inclusive format this year. I'm still pondering taking the road trip!
