Sweet Orange IPA
« on: March 15, 2012, 08:25:11 AM »
Does anyone have an IPA recipe that really accentuates a sweet orange flavor & aroma using only malt, hops, yeast and water?

The best advice I can give is to use Bells house yeast, as that is what gives Oberon the orange-ish flavor.  Harvest it from the Amber or Pale Ale as those are lower ABV and the yeast will not be stressed.

I thought this beer had a really strong orange flavor from the hops, very tasty:
