I recently brewed this beer using the partial mash kit and it smelled fantastic from the beginning. Occasional tastings here and there were so flavorful. Do your self a HUGE favor and buy about a dozen of the small muslin bags to make hop balls. At 13 oz of hops for the boil, you will have a heck of a time trying to filter them all out and still have useable amounts of wort plus 3 to 4 oz of dry hops in the secondary translates to about FOUR INCHES of hops floating on top and about 10 days of waiting for this to clarify only to wind up with a good amount of hop sludge while bottling. All that aside, this is one of the better beers I have had!

I first brewed this recipe in 2010 and it was a winner (see comments under Michael S.). I recently repurchased the kit and all seemed to go very well. Although a very good IPA in its own right, the end product was not as I'd hoped or remembered, and certainly NOT Pliny-like. I dug through my old notes and found the original recipe from AHB. Wow! Lots of changes have been made. I'll be sure to brew to the OLD recipe next time.

Brewed up the All Grain version of this kit and I just sampled the bottle at 2 weeks after bottling and it's coming along quite nicely! The hop aroma is outstanding. I mixed all the dry hops together and divided them up in three equal parts and added one portion per week and bottled one week after the 3rd dry hop addition. I recommend purchasing a 5 gal paint strainer bag from one of the big box stores or a very large grain bag for your hop additions. Attach it to your boil kettle with some binder clips and toss your hops in that vs tossing in multiple small hop bags. I also recommend using a strainer between the bottling bucket/keg and the secondary when siphoning. This definitely hits the spot when you're in an IPA mood.

Did the extract version Opened the first bottle after a week (even though recipe says six weeks) and got a citrusy piney whiff of a famous vermont IPA. I messed up my water volume and measurement and added 1/2 lb DME to hit 1.071 and ended up overshooting and hitting 1.080. Fermented out with a 2 step 2 L starter of WLP001 down to 1.015. After 3 weeks in the bottle it's shaping up to be one of the best beers I have brewed yet.

For this, this wasn't a spot on Pliny clone. It was however, an awesome IPA. This was a beer I shared with my beer snob friends to show how good homebrew can be. Will definitely brew again.
