made my normal house IPA a few weeks back for my brewclub's upcoming Fest Party and just kegged it on Tuesday. same standard recipe I've developed and used for years, and in fact i have the previous batch on tap in my house. Dryhop is 50:50 Simcoe and Amarillo.
Aroma on this one has a very large sweet orange and honey presence, rather than citrus with loads of pine and some of that simcoe dank. has an orange-y flavor as well.
variables that were different this time: i dryhopped in primary conical this time rather than in the keg due to time and space constraints, and i used 2012 harvest leaf hops (vacuum sealed, unopened and frozen) versus the newer pellets I normally use.
trying to pinpoint what caused the stark difference versus the last batch (much more what you'd expect for that dryhop combo - my recipe usually comes out very reminscent of Alpine Duet). I haven't dryhoppped in primary in a year or two now, but it could be the old hops.
