Notes:

Descriptors: citrus, oranges, lemon

I ended up brewing a number versions of this clone. This one probably came the closest to what you get in a fresh bottle. Other versions I threw hops in the keg and it changed the taste dramatically. Amarillo left in a keg seems to be too aggressive for me, too floral (not a desirable flavor to me). The water additions are a little too heavy, you get a salty aftertaste that doesn’t seem appropriate. There’s a slight biscuity taste in the malt build.

I compared it to a Peeper I was able to get my hands on. The color was pretty much spot on. Taste wise it wasn’t really fair, the Peeper bottle was about 4 months old and just didn’t hold it’s hop sweat.

This recipe won a local competition in the IPA category.
