My experience with these clone recipes for PAs or IPAs is to increase the amount of hops by 50% or so. My theory is that commercial brewers have access to fresher hops than we homebrewers have. Once I started jacking up the hops I became way happy with my hoppier beers.

Good info, thanks.  I have a couple of others I am going to try, but this one is on my list.

I've brewed the clone and as others said it's not even in the ballpark. Now a Cascade/Briess 2 row smash with the Sierra Nevada Pale Ale yeast fermented around 67F is really good!

Good to know.  I am hoping to have a crop of Cascade in the near future.  How much 2 row and cascade and when did you add?  Any info would be awesome as I can put it on my list of tries

Go find a recipe,called Nearly Nirvana.  It was a Big Brew recipe years ago.  As close to SNPA as you can get in homebrew.

Does AHA still have the recipes from all the prior big beer days (and learn to brew days)?  Are they at the web site and I didn't see them?
