So, While I love Stone IPA, I made this one twice. First with original recipe, and then the 2nd batch was with different hops for a more "earthy" flavor (my preference). I ended up dry hopping, for only about 3 days after fermentation was complete. But I changed my hops and timing. I used 1/2 oz from Chinook to Simcoe at the 45 minute boil mark. Then, for dry hopping, after fermentation, I used 1/2 oz Centennial, 1/2 oz Simcoe and the 1/2 oz Chinook. It turned out more similar to an ESB. Nice, a little bitter, and earthy flavor. But, both versions turned out well.
It has only been two weeks since I bottled and it is a great beer! I am very happy with it. Great hop aroma and flavor but there is enough malt to counter-balance. I can't wait to share with friends! Will brew this one again!
I, too, have not tried the real Stone IPA, but I was told it is quite similar to that excellent Two-Hearted Ale from Bells Brewing in Kalamazoo. The AHS recipe is excellent, and the outcome was great. Next time, I will fine some to clarify, but the hoppy aroma is very much like the Bells, and the overall taste is really excellent. It's been a decade since I last brewed (moved to winemaking), but this AHS recipe has me hooked on brewing (again). Tim in MO
Best beer ever!
I agree completley with the previous comment: BEST BEER EVER! If you like IPA's or are a Hop Head you have GOT to try this recipe. You will NOT be disappointed. There is nothing else I can say about this. B - B - E !!!!!!!!
