Ingredients / Re: Citra Pale Ale? Citra and Cascade Pale Ale?
« on: March 04, 2016, 05:03:14 PM »
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!

I like the above info. If I were to fruit an IPA, id go citrus (orange, grapefruit, tangerine), pineapple, mango or apricot. It would be a fruit that enhances the hop character. With my experience with a peach beer, it turned out mudded. I'd go apricot instead, because it's more acidic with a similar flavor.

I would also showcase hops that are similar to, or compliment, the fruit involved.

I don't know if I'd ever fruit an IPA, but that doesn't mean that I don't like it. I am really digging Ballast Point's Pineapple Sculpin right now!
Although I have not tried, I would think pineapple, mango or apricot would go well with citra.

I totally agree. I also think meridian would be a great player with apricot.

I bet you would probably be fine with either category. I was trying to see if I could find Troegs Nugget Nectar listed as a commercial example anywhere. I couldn't. Troegs defines it as an Imperial Amber. American Amber has Troegs Hopback listed as a commercial example. I would consider it to be the little brother to Nugget Nectar.

I actually just kegged a beer similar to this. I purposely just brewed a hoppier nugget nectar-like style beer. I call it a "Hoppy Imperial Amber" lol.

I probably would go with American Amber.... but It's a tough one. It would probably fit in both Red IPA and American Amber.

It's actually not bad. Just not my cup of tea. A little too sweet for me. About 6-8 oz is enough for me.
